Baking on Saturday – Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Well, happy Saturday.  Today, I tried combining one of my favorite snacks into one bread.  Peanut butter banana bread.  It turned out really well.  It’s super moist and hearty with good flavor and texture.

Ingredients

2-3 bananas mashed

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup melted peanut butter

2 eggs

1 cup warm milk

1 tbsp vanilla extract

3 cups flour

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

Step One

Preheat oven to 325*F.  Spray the inside of two  bread pans and set aside.

Step Two

Whisk together the first six ingredients (banana, sugar, peanut butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla) in a medium sized mixing bowl to make the wet mix.  Make sure that it is smooth with all the banana chunks gone.  (Tip, use either the “melt” or the “defrost” setting on the microwave when melting the peanut butter.)

Step Three

In a large mixing bowl, combine the last three ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda).  Stir them evenly together.

Step Four

Combine the wet and dry mix to make the batter.  Stir only until the two are combined and there is no dry mix left.  Try to avoid over-stirring.

Step Five

Distribute the batter evenly between the two bread pans.  Bake in the oven at 325*F for 60-65 minutes are until you can stick a fork or toothpick into the center of the loaf and it comes out clean.

 

 

This is a pretty straightforward recipe.  It turend out very good like I said and went perfectly with a glass of milk for the kids and a cup of coffee for me.  As always, thank you for reading.  If you are a visitor on the blog for the first time and would like to receive an email notification every time I post something new, click in the link in the lower right hand corner of your screen.  Thanks again.
