Christmas Goodies

December 14th, 2010 at 01:44 am

Yesterday was a horrible day outside. We had blowing snow and frigid temperatures. After church, it was a blessing to get inside and be warm and safe.

It was also a good day to bake. I baked breads and cookies and some brownies. I've already shared my banana bread recipe a few months back, but here's a recipe for peanut butter bread and you are to serve it with jam. I saw Paula Deen make it a few years ago and had to try it. It's easy and fairly tasty.

Peanut Butter Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/3 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 cups milk

1/2 cup peanut butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine dry ingredients. Add milk and peanut butter. Pour into a greased 8 by 4 by 3-inch loaf pan. Bake for approximately 50 minutes. Serve with your favorite jam.

I actually had 3 smaller loaves because I wanted to put them with banana bread and cookies and dipped pretzels for some gift trays. Some of us are at a point that we don't need to give gifts of objects -- we appreciate the time and effort of something home made!

    That sounds like a great recipe, I miss good peanut butter. We are living overseas and all they have this odd, Dutch stuff that leads me to feel more homesick when I eat it. Smile There are some flavors and items that just offer some insurance of the feelings of home... and others that you really miss. Peanut butter is one of them, for me!
