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!

    OMG, this will become a staple in our house!! First, the house smells DIVINE while baking. An unmistakable peanut butter scent, the kids were bouncing off the walls waiting for it, LOL! Next, it rose beautifully, just about a half inch over the top of my loaf pan. Waited 10 minutes to cut it, very rich, fluffy, and moist. TIPS: I used 2 cups traditional white flour and skippy brand peanut butter. My 15 year old hand mixer was groaning right before adding the milk, the batter was pretty dense. Once the milk was added, it was all good again. If you have a stand mixer, I would use that. Took it out after 50 minutes, and it was still a little raw inside, it required an additional 8 minutes in my oven. I must experiment with doubling or tripling this recipe, b/c 1 loaf will not last around here! Thank you Cinnamon Girl!
