"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."

"This is a wonderful recipe. It is bread Why would you think it pours? No bread I have ever made Pours. I have taken bread making classes since I was 16 and not one bread recipe ever was pour-able. When making breads and other recipes you might have to alter the recipe due to the location you live in due to the humility and elevations."

"I should have known that when the batter didn't pour and was a paste, it was not good!

I should have read the reviews before making this. Doesn't anyone test these recipes before posting?"

"I made it this morning, I read the other reviews, did add more milk as suggested it was very thick, added a little more salt after tasting, used crunchy peanut butter. Smelled great cooking, was very bland, will try some honey next time, it needs something to get it a little punch. Haven't tried it toasted yet, may change the taste some."

"The second time I made this recipe, I added an extra 1/2 cup of milk and it was much better. I would make it again. I have found that I always have to alter recipes to my own liking."

"Sad. I was hoping for a muffin loaf kind of texture and more flavor. My batter was so thick, it didn't pour. Very dry, too. I will try and modify this and get back to you if I am successful. Otherwise, will try another recipe."
