Grandma's recipe handed down over the years, with 1 minor alteration! Stranded without a car, a toddler under foot and half way through the recipe I realized I was out of the margarine the recipe called for..."Oh bother," what to do? Well, there was always peanut butter in the house, and with nothing to lose at that point, I SUBSTITUTED! The end result was this recipe.

It was very easy and quick to make, but we did not care for the taste. We prefer the bread made with shortening.

This was so simple to make and tastes very good. Of course, anything with peanut butter has to be good.
