Trials of a Long Haired Girl tries...a Vintage Recipe...Peanut Butter Bread


From my 1914 Recipe book:

 This recipe is handwritten.  Although, not all of the recipes are and it appears that some are from a later time period (1934, specifically) and are cut from the newspaper.  

As I began to type out this recipe, I realized that she only listed the ingredients, nothing more.  No instructions on how to combine or what temperature to bake it on and for how long.  So, I winged it.

 Peanut Butter Bread

 2 cups Flour

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1 teaspoon Salt

1/2 cup Sugar (or less)

1/2 cup Peanut Butter

2 Large Eggs

Milk to make stiff batter (about 1/2 cup)


  • 1.       Preheat oven 350 degrees.
  • 2.       Grease loaf pan and set aside.
  • 3.       Combine Dry ingredients (flour, baking powder salt, sugar).
  • 4.       Beat your eggs and add them to your dry ingredients.
  • 5.       Add your peanut butter.
  • 6.       Mix together.
  • 7.       Then add your milk approximately 1 tablespoon at a time until you get a stiff batter.
  • 8.       Put in your greased loaf pan and cook for approximately 55-60 minutes.
I wound up only putting in 6 tablespoons of milk and my bread came out a little dry and crumbly, but it had a good flavor.

Update!  I wasn't happy with the first footage, so I made the recipe again.  I floured the bottom of the pan so it didn't stick so bad.  Used 1/2 cup of crunchy peanut butter rather than creamy.  I'll post a picture of the second version.


  1. It is truly a well-researched content and excellent wording. about Buy peanut butter. I got so engaged in this material that I couldn’t wait to read. I am impressed with your work and skill. Thanks.
