Calling all Peanut butter fans, you’ll love this frugal recipe idea!
This old, quick bread recipe is now going Reddit-viral almost 90 years later! 😱 I’m guessing since so many of us are spending our time at home baking.
The best part about the recipe is its minimal ingredient list! You’ll only need 6 common pantry staples, and no yeast or eggs.
I was so excited to try out this recipe and was thrilled when the peanut butter bread loaf turned out delicious!
According to the Glen & Friends Cooking Channel via YouTube.com, this Peanut Butter Loaf is from an old Canadian cookbook from 1932 called Five Roses Flour-A Guide to Good Cooking. What makes it so interesting is that it’s eggless and only uses peanut butter for its fat source.
Where can I get the recipe?
Anyone cake bake this Peanut Butter Bread!
As far as the process goes, things couldn’t be easier! It’s a one-bowl batter recipe and I followed the directions as written, except for adding an extra tablespoon of peanut butter to the 1/2 cup the recipe called for, with hopes of a stronger peanut butter taste as Glen & Friends suggested.
The batter gets poured into a greased loaf pan and baked for about an hour. Mine was ready pretty much right at the 60-minute mark of baking time. You’ll need to allow the loaf to cool before transferring it out of the pan.
Once cooled, you can slice and enjoy as desired!
It tastes great, and almost like a peanut butter cookie, but less sweet. The peanut butter taste is subtle and the texture is nice! Overall, this recipe was a winner for myself and my family, and I love it as a pantry staple quarantine recipe idea to bake at home!
Hip Recipe Tips:
- I used creamy Skippy peanut butter because it’s what I had on hand and I loved the results. You could definitely use chunky peanut butter or even another nut butter if desired.
Here’s how I topped my warm bread slice:
A piece of peanut butter bread with sliced bananas and a drizzle of honey was super delicious paired with a cup of coffee for breakfast this morning. Next time I’d love to toast a piece with jelly. YUM!
