This recipe is from the Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedic Cookbook of 1950. It was posted in a thread about old vintage cookbooks. Next to the recipe is a black and white photograph of the bread and a description that reads: Youngsters sing with all their might. Hooray! It's peanut-butter bread tonite. This recipe belongs in the Southern region - the home of Georgia peanuts!

Tasted like a soft peanut butter cookie, but not as strong. We really enjoyed this bread! I think next time I will add a little vanilla and maybe a tad bit more peanut butter for a slightly stronger taste. Thanks for a great recipe!
