Peanut Butter Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

I can't seem to get enough banana bread recipes, and the addition of peanut butter is always a plus. I love the light, cakelike texture of this bread. I may increase the peanut butter next time - it's pretty subtle, although it does comes through more strongly as the bread sits (it would probably be good to make it the night before you want to eat it). I made this into mini-loaves, baked for 35-40 minutes. From Home Cooking Magazine (November-December 2004).

This was an awesome bread. I used smooth peanut butter and increased the amount to 3/4 cup. I also added 3 oz of cream cheese (in place of the buttermilk) 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon salt. The bread has a very smooth and dense texture and is delish! Thanks for sharing.
