You had me at peanut butter and banana. Baked into a bread?! Is there any better way to eat toast than with peanut butter and banana? This is going to be so great for breakfast. Or as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! Oooh, or as french toast possibly?!
This also was great because it doesn’t call for too many ingredients, and for a raised bread recipe, the resting time was pretty short! I found the recipe here.
- 1 cup warm tap water
- 2 1/4 t active dry yeast
- 1 T brown sugar
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup bread flour (+ more as needed)
- heaping 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 small banana, mashed
- 1 t salt
- Whisk the water, yeast, and sugar together. Set aside for 10 minutes, or until foamy. Meanwhile mix the remaining ingredients in the bowl of your stand mixer. Add yeast mixture and knead with the dough hook until the bowl is clean. If the dough is sticky, (mine was) add more flour a tablespoon at a time ( I had to keep adding to mine quite a bit) until well-mixed, pliable, and lovely.
- Transfer to a medium bowl and cover with a tea towel. Allow to rise for 45-60 minutes. Transfer to a greased bread pan and allow to rise for 30 minutes or until the loaf is just peaking over the sides.
- Meanwhile, preheat oven to 325F. Bake bread for 35-45 minutes or until sounds hollow when tapped and is nice and dark on top. Remove from pan and cool completely. Slice and serve toasted with more peanut butter and bananas or simply butter, honey, and sea salt.
