{Recipe} Peanut Butter Bread

When I was growing up my sister and I baked a lot. My mom had a set of 3 McCall's cookbooks...a cookie one, a cakes and pies one and a home-baked breads one.  We used them so much that the majority of them are no longer bound! Well I was going through them a couple of weeks ago and organized them and discovered missing pages.....pages that contained the best Coffee Cake recipe ever. So I called my mom and asked if she could look for them and praise the Lord she found them! I will be sharing that recipe soon!
Another recipe, though, caught my eye....Peanut Butter Bread.  I had never had such a thing so I gave it a go! And results were yummy!

Peanut Butter Bread

2 1/4 cups sifted all purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups milk

Optional: peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.  Sift flour with baking powder and salt; set aside.  In large bowl, using portable electric mixer, or with wooden spoon, beat peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla until well combined.  Gradually add milk, beating until well blended.  Add flour mixture, beating until mixture is smooth.  Pour into prepared pan; bake about 1 hour or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.  Let cool in pan 10 minutes.  Remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack.

Notes: before baking I sprinkled peanut butter chips on top.  Next time I will put them on the inside too, they were a great addition!
I used a mini square pan and baked for about 20 minutes with my oven set on convect. 
 They do need to be stored in an air tight container to prevent drying out.

I love this kind of recipe because, except possibly for the peanut butter chips, you'd have everything on hand and is perfect if you need to make something in a pinch!

Here's my Instagram of the home-baked breads edition....

.....they are more like a booklet, but you can see where we taped it! Ha!! I did look on Ebay and discovered a variety of these, apparently there was a series so I might have to add to my family heirlooms!

Let me know if you try this recipe out!!
Happy Thursday lovelies!!
