Like a Giant Peanut Butter Cookie
I know this looks like a giant peanut butter cookie. Let me reassure you--it tastes like one too. I tried this delicious peanut butter bread warm and with just a little butter spread on top, and I'm not sure it could get better than that. However, I bet it would be tasty with a little jelly on it or a bit of honey. I found the original recipe here.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the peanut butter until crumbly. Combine the egg, milk and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Transfer to a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
Now for some other news. Drumroll...this blog might finally be seeing some of the "pages" part that I originally intended! I'm finally finishing Vanity Fair tonight, and I'll be starting Anne Bronte's Agnes Grey tomorrow. I can't wait to move on to some new reading for my thesis, and actually just some new reading in general.
