"This recipe was a swing and a miss. Will not make again."

"This recipe was not only dry, but needs a lot of tweeking. It needs about 1 cup of peanut butter, and at least 1/2 cup of sugar, maybe 2 eggs also to hold it together better. Disappointed that I tripled the batch, and none of my kids want to eat it."

"After reading the reviews I decided to change this recipe slightly. I added 1/4 cup melted butter and 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips. It was perfectly moist and the flavor was great!"

"I added the extra milk and peanut butter and the texture was fine. It was just tasteless. Put some jelly or even spread with more peanut butter helps. Won't make again"

"As written this bread is worth four stars. it is a little dry. Nobody should be complaining about the fact that it doesn't pour. I make all of our own bread and from hot dog buns, to pumpkin bread to naan, bread DOES NOT POUR!!! Very tasty bread, a little dry though. When I make it my way (five stars) I use 1 1/2 cups of milk and 1 cup of peanut butter (crunchy or smooth depending on my mood) and it comes out great. It is certainly worth trying, very easy to make. I enjoy it with a little bit of cherry vanilla jam on top."
