Peanut Butter Bread

Slices of this yummy peanut butter bread are great spread with grape jelly. Kids will ask for it along with a big glass of milk for an after-school snack. —Linda Muir, Big Lake, Minnesota

    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?
