Every once in a while the kid's get "bored" of peanut butter and jelly. Sometimes it's just the easiest, most durable thing to pack for lunch as we bounce from beach to pool to ballet to where ever our days take us. I found this recipe for Peanut Butter Bread the Fannie Farmer Cookbook (I swear I own more than one cookbook!) and thought I would try it.
Surprisingly, I found it to be even more "portable" than PB & J sandwiches. I can just wrap the slices and bring a little tupperware of jam with me. (Preferably Aunt Denine's jam!) No soggy bread, no messy, melted peanut butter! Now it will just be a matter of time before this peanut butter bread makes it to the "boring" list!
2 cups white flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1 cup milk
1 egg, well beaten
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl beat the peanut butter, milk and egg together until smooth. Spoon into loaf pan and bake for 50-55 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool. Slice and top with your favorite jam.
