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!

    Just wanted to let you know I LOVE this recipe! Sometimes I make it as directed and sometimes (like tonight) I add 3 ripe bananas and a dollop of honey to it! So so good. I always come back to this one :)

    Thank you so much for your recipe! I made it and your grape jam (which I love because I didn’t have to do the whole canning thing). The bread tasted like a Reese’s cup, so I can see how adding chocolate chips or a chocolate ganache on top would be awesome! The bread was moist and crumbly. Loved it!

      Thanks a lot Eva! I’m glad you’re enjoying my recipes – that makes me so happy! :-) It’s really good with chocolate chips! I hope you get a chance to try it.

    These are also great as muffins. I divided the batter among 12 muffin cups and baked at 375 deg. for 18-20 minutes. Umm, I also used some chocolate-oatmeal ‘streusel’ (a/k/a a disastrous attempt at halving the chocolate no-bake cookie recipe): I put a big spoon of batter in each cup, then sprinkled on a thin layer of the streusel. Then added more batter to each cup and topped each muffin with a generous layer of the streusel, patting it down a little to make sure it stuck. Then I baked them. I was afraid they’d overflow everywhere, since the 12 cups were completely full, but they just crowned up nicely. Tasty, too!
