If your a peanut butter & jam/jelly lover (like me) then you’ll love this! This is best served while the loaf is still warm from the oven, spread with jam/jelly and you’ll be in heaven.
2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 Tbsp mashed banana
2/3 + 1/4 cup sugar, you can use white or soft brown
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice works too
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk
chocolate chips, chopped peanuts are optional
Preheat oven to 375C/gas 5. Line a loaf tin.
Put all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together well.
Then mix in all wet ingredients. If your peanut butter isn’t nice and soft then microwave it for 40 seconds or until soft.
Pour into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 50 minutes, if after this time it looks to be getting very brown on top then cover with kitchen foil and return to the oven for another 40 minutes. Check with a skewer that it’s cooked through and remove from the oven. Leave in the tin for ten minutes then carefully transfer to a cooling rack.
If like me you need to eat this warm, it’s best left fot half an hour before slicing, it’ll still be warm 😉
