Peanut Butter Breakfast Loaf
By Sue Lau
This month for #BreadBakers, the emphasis is on nut flours. I decided to use some of the peanut flour in my pantry which is made by Jif and is a finely textured flour. It adds a lot of peanut butter flavor without all the fat associated with peanut butter.
For a different take on it, I added coffee as a flavoring, and since this made it taste breakfast-like to me, used maple flavoring as well, which made it perfectly suitable for toasting up slices and spreading with homemade jam or jelly.
If you see the bit of dark around the edge- that wasn’t from the loaf but where I toasted the piece before adding jelly. I do tend to like dark crunchy edges! It was perfect with my cup of Ethiopian Sidamo coffee, which also has a hint of maple to it. Great for enjoying out on the patio these warm mornings when the sun rises and before it gets hot, enjoying the birds including the hummingbirds that frequent our feeder. It’s a very relaxing ritual for us in the warm seasons!
Join me tomorrow when I share my recipe for cherry clafoutis, which is a perfect dessert for this month with all the cherries coming in. I noticed that the local orchards that offer cherries have them in right now, so that’s a head’s up for you if you plan to get them really fresh to keep an eye on it. Otherwise, the huge tubs they ship in from Michigan are just a little past for making jam. But my recipe uses the fresh Rainier cherries which I like because they don’t tend to stain the fingers while pitting.
