Peanut Butter Banana Bread
This recipe is an interesting twist on a classic snack.
- 1 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 1/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
- 3 cups sugar
- 6 eggs
- 6 ripe bananas, mashed
- 6 cups flour
- 3 tsp salt
- 3 tsp baking soda
- Cream the butter, peanut butter, & sugar. Add in the eggs and mix well. Add the bananas and mix well. Set aside.
- In separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, & baking soda.
- Add flour mixture to the banana mixture. Do not overmix.
- Grease the bottoms only of three 9x5 bread pans. Divide batter evenly between the three pans. Bake at 350°F for 70-75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
- Cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from the pan.
- Cool completely before eating.
This is the first time I am visiting your site. Came thru google, while searching for a peanut butter cake with bananas. I am planning to make it whole wheat version, let’s see. Will post how it turns out . Thanks sister.
If you want to try wheat then I’d recommend doing half wheat, half white flour. Full-wheat bread (quick or yeast) turns out heavy. Whenever I make wheat bread I always go 50/50.
Otherwise, sounds like it’d work. Hope it turns out for you.
I did the cake. But it wasnt risen enough…and not soft like bread too. turned out like a big soft cookie. Pl let me know wat went wrong. My substitutions are as below.
2 cup flour (0.5 cup all purpose and 1.5 cup millet n wheat)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup and a table spoon of olive oil (ran out of butter!!)
and i baked for 30 mins.
This is after a long time I baked cakes or cookies…so had no idea wat happenned to t preparation. Wait for your inputs :(
I’m not totally sure what went wrong. In general, when something turns out too “cookie-ish", I add additional flour the next time. (And when cookies turn out too “cake-ish” I reduce the flour)
If you try again then I’d also recommend using real butter. Oil is not typically used in quick breads and would change the consistency.
Was it at least a good cookie?
I’m not a picky eater, so I still eat the things that don’t turn out well.
Generally, if it turns out too crumbly then there’s either too much flour or sugar, or not enough butter. That’d be my best suggestion.
