This is a quick bread recipe with the texture similar to a banana bread. The bread uses peanut butter as the primary source of fat along with sour cream. Sour cream provides the best of both worlds – acidity and fat. This results in a richer and moist bread. Brown sugar adds more flavour and moisture. All-in-all a good wholesome bread 🙂
Make some PBJ sandwiches – slather some jelly and you’re good to go! Add another complexity to the flavours by adding some chocolate chips (like I did on top, you can mix in the batter too).
This recipe makes a standard 9″x5″ loaf.
260g creamy peanut butter
70g caster sugar
70g brown sugar
180g milk at room temperature
120g sour cream at room temperature
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
250g all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
100g mini chocolate chips (optional)
1.Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Prepare a standard 9″x5″ loaf pan with parchment paper that slightly hangs outside for easy removal later.
2. In a large bowl, beat together peanut butter, caster sugar and brown sugar for 3-4 minutes using a hand mixer or a whisk.
3. Add the eggs one at a time and mix until combined.
4. Add the milk, sour cream and vanilla and mix.
5. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl and fold in gently till no lumps remain. Do not overmix. If using choco chips, add them now and fold in the batter.
6. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake it for 45-50 minutes till a skewer inserted comes out clean.
7. Remove from oven and let it cool for 10 minutes inside the pan before removing it and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
