Did you ever think to put peanut butter inside your bread instead of on top? This rich bread is perfect for breakfast, toasted with jelly! Of course, you could add more peanut butter when the bread is toasted, for the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

As with all breads, be sure you measure carefully and use the best ingredients. Make sure that your yeast is fresh. Always follow expiration dates on yeast. There's nothing worse than making a loaf of bread, only to have a failure because the yeast has expired. And carefully follow the directions that came with your bread machine.


  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3 cups flour (bread)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons yeast (bread machine)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Measuring carefully, place the water, peanut butter, bread flour, brown sugar, salt, and bread machine yeast in the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.

  3. Select "Sweet" or "Basic/White" cycle. Use "Medium" or "Light Crust Color" and turn the machine on. When the bread is finished it should be a dark gold color and should sound hollow when you tap it with your fingers. You can also test the temperature of the bread; it should be about 210 F.

  4. Carefully remove the bread from the bread machine pan and cool on a wire rack.


  • Always read the booklet that comes with your appliances before you use them.
  • This bread, like all homemade breads, doesn't keep well. I like to slice it and freeze it with pieces of parchment paper between the slices. That way you can pull out a couple of slices and toast them for breakfast to eat on the run.
