Round Thirty Seven — Peanut Butter Bread
I’m going to tell you another story. Are you ready? Get ready. It’s going to be rad.
This is where we were last week, on vacation. Lutsen, Minnesota. It was lovely.
We had time to relax, sleep, eat and take awkward pictures of ourselves. Like this one. (So, so far away.)
When we got home, I had a hankerin’. For peanut butter. And bread. Thus, Peanut Butter Bread. And it’s from Paula Deen, no less! A win-win… win.
First, I had to make the list of ingredients and directions. I love lists.
Then, baking powder.
Which turned into scary smiley faced baking powder! (I tried making him look happier, I swear. It did not go well.)
Add some peanut butter, of course…
Which, when mixed with some of its friends, turns into peanut butter batter…
And then, hoorah! Tasty Peanut Butter Bread.
And with this lovely creation spread along the top…
It’s peanut butter jelly time!
Which is almost as fun as vacation.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together dry ingredients. Add milk and peanut butter to the dry ingredients and mix. Pour mix into a lightly-greased 8 x 4-inch loaf pan and bake 40-50 minutes until golden brown on top. Remove from oven and loaf pan and allow to cool on wire rack.
Saving some for us? I hope so. It looks really good. Pictures look good too. 🙂
Sorry Ma, Elliott scarfed most of it down in the past few days (OK, I helped him. Only a little.). But I can make it for when I see you guys next time!
A) i LOVE paula.
B) did she really make something without butter, buttermilk, or lard?
C) miss ya!
A) I too love Paula. I want her to be my adopted aunt.
B) I know, no butter! Shocking.
C) Miss you too! Hope LA is treating you well!
Love this bread! No yeast! Yeah. Seriously love pb and j. Of course I would still have to spread more peanut butter on the bread…after all, peanut butter is one thing I can never get enough of! Yum.
Lutsen is so beautiful! Being a MN girl myself I am biased… but it really is one of the best “local” vacations for Midwesterners! 🙂 And the pictures on your blog are really spectacular!
This is so good! I made a few adjustments but regardless, it is great. I just found your blog and it is glorious.
