Where I reveal my peanut butter bread recipe
I got the bread machine for a wedding present. I actually had registered for one . . . see, I really, really love sandwiches, and a bread machine enables really yummy bread for the sandwiches. The problem, of course, is that I can’t think “gee, I’d like some bread right now” and then poof have bread waiting1. No, having bread means either thinking ahead or buying it . . . and, much like I typically write, I cook by the seat of my pants. I usually think of what I want to make minutes before I make it, so the couple of hours to make myself bread just never, ever happens.
That said, I do have some recipes that are pretty stellar, assuming you
remember to start beforehand actually think about what you want to make: beer/honey/garlic/wheat pizza dough, oatmeal honey wheat bread, and today’s recipe.
Peanut Butter Bread
Put the ingredients into the bread maker in the following order:
- 1 ½ cups of luke-warm water
- 1 ½ teaspoons of salt2
- 6 tablespoons of honey3
- 1 cup of peanut butter5
- 4 cups of bread flour4
- 1 packet of Active-Dry (not quick rise) yeast6
I like to start the bread before I go to bed so that, when I wake up, it’s waiting for me.
