Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread

I saw this recipe on the website Spiced and couldn’t resist baking a loaf for my kids. I especially loved that this bread uses ingredients that I already had on hand – those are my favorite recipes! The two batters were very thick and I worried a little bit about that but there was no need. The bread not only looked pretty, but it was also flavorful & delicious, it and put a huge smile on my kids’ faces when they came home from school.

How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.

Make the peanut butter batter by combining the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl; stir until mixed well.

In a separate bowl, combine the milk, egg, and peanut butter; whisk very well until creamy and smooth.

Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until just combined. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine the sour cream, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla extract together; whisk very well until creamy and smooth.

Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until just combined. Pour the chocolate batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth it out with a rubber spatula.

  2. I think I have all of these ingredients as well! IT does look like the perfect snack cake.

  3. I made this bread the other day and it turned out very dry and not tasty at all. Will not be making this recipe again. I found there wasn’t enough moisture in either batter.
