Gotta love Girl’s Night! I made this sweet bread for some lovely friends of mine to enjoy after a very tasty dinner (and lots of wine) at our new place. I just love entertaining, and I love spending time with honest, smart, and hilariously amazing women. Whatever the guise of your weekly or monthly get-togethers, quality girl’s time is a must. Book club? Birthdays? Just a Wednesday? Absolutely. Sign me up!
Note: This bread is heaven! You might want to make some changes based on your preference. I felt it could have used a little more salt (maybe ¼ teaspoon?), and a little more sugar (maybe 1/8 cup packed?). One of my friends loved it as is, and another one thought it could use a little more like I did. Either way, it was AMAZING: Very subtle sweetness, very peanut buttery, very thick and dense. Delish!
P.S. I was having so much fun, I forgot to take a picture of this bread. But, take my word for it, it was beautiful!
Heavenly Sweet Peanut Butter Bread
2 cups gluten free flour mix ( Trader Joe’s brand works great!)
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup melted coconut oil
½ cup sugar
¼ cup packed brown sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter (I used salted)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup full-fat coconut milk
Preheat your oven to 350° F, and grease a standard-sized loaf pan with coconut oil and set it aside.
In a small bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Then, in a separate large mixing bowl beat coconut oil and sugars on low speed 2 minutes, Beat in peanut butter then egg and vanilla, scraping down sides of bowl. Add flour mixture and beat on low until combined; the batter will be very thick and crumbly. Pour in coconut milk and beat on low until batter is smooth. You may want to use a wooden spoon, as the batter is very thick! Add batter to loaf pan and evenly spread it out. Bake for 50 minutes or until the center springs back when pressed with a fingertip.
Cool in pan on wire rack 15 minutes, remove from pan and cool completely. When cool, wrap in foil to keep it fresh and moist. Serve as is, or top it with some yummy homemade jam, like my simple blueberry vanilla lemon jam.
