Peanut Butter Bread

Peanut Butter Bread

This is based on a recipe that has been doing the rounds on social media recently, that I thought I’d give a try. Originally a recipe from 1932, I have played around with the ingredients to bring it to the modern bake era and added some ‘sweetness’ to it, to make it more palatable.

  • 250 g Self-Raising Flour
  • 250 g Peanut Butter
  • 250 g Apple Sauce
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 large Egg
  • 150 g Granulated Sugar
  • 125 ml Milk
  • ¼ tsp Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda)


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C.
  • Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  • In a large bowl whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder.
  • Add the peanut butter to the flour mixture, combine with fingertips until it forms a fairly fine crumble.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg and sugar, until light and fluffy. Then incorporate applesauce and milk to the egg mixture.
  • Add bicarbonate of soda to the wet ingredients, stir briefly, then add to the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  • Pour the batter into your pre-prepared loaf tin and bake for 60-70 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
  • Once done, remove from oven and turn out onto a rack to cool. Be sure to not cover your loaf until completely cool, or it will become soggy.
