My Very Educated Mother: Peanut Butter Bread

Peanut Butter Bread


My home is one with a deep appreciation for all things peanut butter.  This latest creation is no exception and takes the PB&J to a completely new level.  It’s got a nice peanut flavor without all the sugar called for in most recipes.  Of course, if sweet is what you’re after you can always spread on more jelly! 

Peanut Butter Bread

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 4 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2/3 cup of peanut butter (I used creamy but crunchy would work too.)
  • 1 egg


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Grease or spray four mini-loaf pans and set aside. 
In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, and brown sugar with a fork.  Make a well in the mixture and add the egg and peanut butter.


Using the fork first blend the egg and peanut butter together and then begin to draw in the dry mixture a little bit at a time.  At a certain point I abandoned the fork and used my fingertips to pinch and combine the ingredients.


Once the mixture resembles fine crumbs slowly begin to add the milk while mixing with your fork.  Combine until everything is moist, transfer to the pans, and bake for 30-35 minutes.

* I do not recommend adding jelly to the bread while it bakes ’cause you’ll end up with a hot mess, see below. 


I hope you and your family enjoy this quick and easy treat!
