"This new "Dinning on a $ Cooking Contest" recipe was created with Ramen Noodles the "Star" ingredient, plus four others on the special ingredient list which include egg, nutmeg, cottage cheese and peanuts. The noodles and the cottage cheese give the bread body & moisture, where as the peanuts give it a nice crunchy texture, The peanut flavor doesn't over power the nutmeg. Serve warm with sweet butter. Enjoy!"

"Oh mmm, what a creative way of creating a lovely breakfast treat. We all enjoyed this bread a lot. It has a nice flavour and soft texture.
I made a couple of changes due to personal preference and what I had on hand: I used a flax egg instead on a real egg, reduced the nutmeg to 1/8 ts and used apple pie spice for the rest, reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup.
Also I used a tad less peanuts for the topping as the whole 1/2 cup would not fit.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, Acadia.
Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #52 November 2012."
"We gave this 5 stars for the most creative use of ramen noodles. This is a quick bread that is nice to taste when you are tired of pumpkin or zucchini bread. It would have helped if the ingredients were listed in order, and I didn't know what to do with the 1/2 cup of butter, so I just used it to butter our pieces after baking. The peanuts are the key ingredient in this recipe, don't leave them out! thank you for sharing your recipe!"
"Made this using a 9" loaf pan & that worked fine! Couldn't imagine using the noodles in a bread, but was determined to triy it anyway & pleased with the results ~ Served it with my own mix of chunky PB & honey butter for a very satisfying treat!"
"I wasn't quite sure what to expect here. Would it be a quick bread, a cake? Not having a pan size included added to the mystery. After mixing this up & seeing the amount of batter I elected to go with a 10" square pan instead of a loaf pan. It worked fine & didn't run over, but since it didn't rise much it probably would have been better in a large loaf pan. The peanut flavor really does come through. We liked that a lot, but both of us thought it wasn't sweet enough to be a dessert. Maybe a thin glaze after baking? I plan to try it toasted & serve with honey butter for breakfast. The bread was dense and didn't rise much. Looking back I used baking SODA rather than powder. oops. I did think this was a VERY creative use of the contest challenge ingredient (ramen noodles) and look forward to more of your entries in future contests! Good luck in the contest!"
