52 Recipes: Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread

Peanut Butter and Jelly by SevenDaysBlog

One thing you guys have to know about me is that I do not cook. If it were up to me I would live on soup, crackers, and turkey for the rest of my life. Luckily, I married someone who loves to cook. For the first two months we were married he cooked amazing meals without once complaining that I didn't help. Then New Year's rolled around and I began to rack my brain for a resolution that I could really stick to. Surprisingly, cooking is the first thing that came to mind. I decided that I would commit to making something once a week. So far I've made a few pasta dishes, some delicious barbecue meatballs, and banana bread. It's been quite an adventure, and I think that it'll be even more fun now that I can share it with you guys. Every week I'll share the recipe that I attempt as well as any tips and tricks that I learned while making it.
This week I wanted to make some type of bread. My original thought was something involving sun dried tomatoes, but that was thrown out the window when I got to the grocery store and discovered this raspberry jelly. I immediately thought "Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread!!". I was so excited that I snatched up the ingredients and rushed right home to get started. I spent a little time searching around for recipes and ideas, and then I developed a recipe that fit exactly what I wanted.

1 cup Peanut Butter
4 tbsp softened butter
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup jelly
1 tbsp honey

Now, let's get down to business.

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

2. Add the peanut butter, butter, egg, sugar, and milk to the bowl and mix until smooth

3. Mix in the baking powder, salt, flour, vanilla, and cinnamon

Once all ingredients are well mixed it's time to start layering everything together!

4. Grease the pan, and spoon in 1/3 of the peanut butter mixture

5. Add a thin (or thick depending on your taste) layer of jelly, and continue layering until the entire mixture is gone

6. Allow to bake for 40-45 minutes

 The classic "clean knife test" may not be entirely reliable for this particular recipe because of the batter's consistency. After 45 minutes, even if the knife doesn't come out clean, take the loaf out of the oven and allow to cool. When it's completely cooled, pop it out of the pan, slice it up, and enjoy!!

I'll be honest, mine came out a little burnt on the edges, but it was definitely delicious. Peanut butter and jelly is one of my all time favorites, and I'll definitely be indulging in this recipe again. Let me know what you guys think!
