Peanut-butter Bread it's better than you might think

Note: this is a bread-machine recipe. I don't actually know how to make bread by hand. I imagine you can just use standard hand-made technique, but you may have to modify the recipe somewhat for hand-kneading because it's a bit STICKY. I'd suggest substituting a third cup peanut meal for one of the scoops of peanut butter.


Peanut Butter Bread Photo 1 cup water
1 tablespoon margarine or butter, melted
2 heaping spoonfuls of peanut butter (2 tablespoons if you're picky, but more is good). I like to use chunky.
1 cup or so flour (preferably the stuff labelled for bread-making)
1 cup wheat flour
1/3 - 1/2 cup peanut meal (peanuts ground to a powder)
2 tablespoons or so brown sugar
a glop of maple syrup (or try molasses)
1 teaspoon salt
1.5-2 teaspoons active dry yeast


Put ingredients in bread machine, starting with wet ingredients, then flour and dry ingredients, then the yeast on top. Standard wheat setting is usually appropriate. Start her up and let her go... hours later you have a wonderfully moist and delicious chunk of bread.

Note: Bread machines vary. Mine is a Sunbeam Hot&Fresh Bread Maker. It makes a reasonably small loaf -- a standard white bread recipe takes 2 cups of flour -- scale the recipe for your breadmaker appropriately.
