Peanut Butter Banana Bread

My little twist on banana bread because I love peanut butter!

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 overripe bananas, mashed
2¼ cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 5 small or 2 regular size loaf pans with nonstick spray.

In large bowl mixing by hand, cream butter, peanut butter, and sugar. Add eggs and banana; mix thoroughly. In smaller bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add vanilla to buttermilk. Add dry ingredients and buttermilk alternately to creamed mixture; mix just until combined. Fold in peanut butter chips. Scoop batter evenly into prepared pans, sprinkle tops with a little sugar if desired. Bake 35 minutes (small loaves), 50 minutes (large loaves) or until golden brown and pick in center comes out clean. Cool in pans at least 15 minutes before removing. Cool completely before slicing for clean slices (usually I can wait, messy slices taste just as good).

Butter Swim Biscuits

Easiest biscuits for dinner! A little crisp and very buttery on the outside and tender on the inside. Recipe comes from simplytexas. Careful, these are dangerous, you might eat the whole pan!

Butter Swim Biscuits

Butter Swim Biscuits 2

2½ cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
4 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1¾ cups buttermilk
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400°. Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Stir in buttermilk just until combined. Pour melted butter into 9″x9″. Drop biscuit batter into pan and spread out evenly. Butter will come up over the edges and cover over the top of the biscuit batter, as if it is “swimming”. Cut biscuits about half way down into batter to create the individual biscuits (3×3 or 4×4). Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and beautiful! Cool a bit and cut through again, but all the way through to the bottom of pan. Enjoy!

Pear Pecan Bread

Every once in a while I stand in my pantry and look around, what am I forgetting is here? Is there something that will be going out of date? My kids would probably play the game “Who can find an item with the oldest date”. This recipe is to use a can of pears found on the bottom shelf, back behind the cans of pumpkin I am using because it’s fall! Definitely a delicious way to use up that almost old can of pears!

Pear Pecan Bread

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 (15 oz) can pears, drained, reserve juice
milk
1¾ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2-1 cup chopped pecans (as desired)
cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 350°. In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Chop pears fairly small and mix into creamed mixture. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Put reserved juice into liquid measuring cup and add enough milk to make 1 cup. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternately with pear juice mixture. Fold in chopped pecans. Spray three small loaf pans with nonstick spray and pour batter into pans. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake for 35 minutes. Cool in pans for 10 minutes, remove from pans and cool completely on wire rack.

Zucchini Bread

An oldie but a goodie! In my mind zucchini bread is the very best thing to do with zucchini. A lot of recipes say to peel the zucchini before you grate it, I don’t peel my zucchini. I am guessing there are a lot of vitamins and nutrients in the peel, plus I like the look of little bits of green in the bread. So, when you eat this zucchini bread it’s like having a serving of vegetables…well, don’t quote me on that.

Zucchini Bread

3 eggs
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups grated zucchini
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2-1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 5 small loaf pans (or 2 large loaf pans) and sprinkle bottom with flour. In large bowl, stir together eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla, and grated zucchini. Stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; add to zucchini mixture and mix just until combined. Fold in nuts. Pour batter evenly into loaf pans. Bake 30 minutes (60 minutes for large pans) or until pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pans 10 minutes, then remove and cool on wire rack.
