I just found something new, and had to share it!! As some of you know, my roomie suffers from Crohns, and is limited on what she can eat. Well, when researching Crohns, I found a great cookbook for free!! I ordered it, of course, and it arrived over the weekend. I immediately started reading.
I found the most MARVELOUS recipe for a quick bread made with peanut butter in there!! For those who don't know...the difference between quick bread and regular bread is fairly simple. Quick breads are made with baking powder, so don't require a rise time, and regular bread uses yeast, which does. So, for those who want a FAST loaf of bread that is as yummy as it gets, you have GOT to try this!!!
PEANUT BUTTER BREAD
1/2 cup creamy-style peanut butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk (2%, and you CAN use soy milk)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 1 loaf pan (9x4x4) OR 4 mini-loaf pans. Set aside
In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, both sugars, and the egg, beating until well blended. Add milk, and thoroughly mix together. In a small bowl, blend the baking powder, salt, and flour, then slowly add it to the peanut butter mixture. Blend well.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan(s). Bake for about 50 minutes (20-30 for mini-loaves), checking for doneness about 5 minutes before time. Remove, allow to cool for 5 minutes, then take out of pan, and cool completely on a rack.
Makes 1 loaf or 4 mini-loaves.
This bread can be used for making french toast, and tastes FANTASTIC!! If you have a picky eater, or like me have someone who has digestive issues, this is a practical and tasty alternative to traditional bread...kids will ADORE it!! ENJOY!!
