Sweet Peanut Butter Bread

This recipe hardly needs an introduction. Especially if you’re a peanut butter connoisseur. Or even if you’re just a plain old peanut butter lover.

It’s a bread. Infused with copious amounts of peanut butter. That is all.

Tee-hee. I would never leave you hanging like that!

I needed a way to celebrate the homemade grape jelly I made. Something a little lot more special than plain old sliced bread. Because in all honesty the grape jelly I made for the very first time with my very own two talented hands is some of the best stuff in the entire world.

(Not to brag, but I am bursting with joy over successfully making my own jelly for the second time that is far and away better than any of that highly-processed, high-fructose laden stuff they try to pass off on you in the market and I had to tell someone!)

No more walking away from the jelly aisle empty-handed, forcing me to eat peanut butter sandwiches with butter on them instead of jelly like my Grandma taught me. Bless her heart.

This is exactly like eating a spoonful of peanut butter. Or a peanut butter sandwich. It sticks to the roof of your mouth. Have milk handy! And jelly helps too! Especially when it’s homemade. Did I tell you it’s the best stuff on the face of the planet? The two together are over the moon!

    I am so going to make this bread!  It looks so good and we do love peanut butter here!   I have a question though, what’s half white whole wheat?    I haven’t ever seen a recipe with that a tablespoon of baking powder either so this is just all an interesting combination but I bet it’s really good!

    Purrs to Moon!

      I think it uses a lot of baking powder because the peanut butter is so heavy
      - it keeps it light and fluffy. When I say half white whole wheat I mean I
      substituted white whole wheat flour in place of half of the all-purpose
      flour – so for this I used 1 cup all purpose and 1 cup white whole wheat.
      White whole wheat is wheat flour that is easier to bake with than whole
      wheat. I use King Arthur – your market should have it it will say white
      whole wheat on the bag.

    Oh ho ho, I am SO making this. Made with natural peanut butter, this is going to be absolutely amazing. But I do think now I have to buy another jar of orange marmalade… :)

    Ok Reeni 

    I’m going into the kitchen now, it’s 11:00pm, and making this bread. Because I’m a total chocolate freak and Reese lover, i’m adding chocolate chips! Thanks for yet another craving GF. ** Hugs n Smiles**
