What You Need To Know About The Viral No-Yeast Peanut Butter Bread

Move over, sourdough starters. There's a new bread going viral, and it's a lot easier and less time-consuming. If you haven't heard of peanut butter bread, it's time you were introduced. This no-yeast quick bread can be made with items you likely already have in your pantry and can come together in as little as an hour or so (via Today).

The bread first surfaced seven months ago on Reddit from a 1932 Canadian cookbook, Five Roses: A Guide to Good Cooking. Initially, the Reddit recipe was inspired by a YouTube video by Glen and Friends Cooking. Now people are baking this bread at home and customizing it with whatever they like to make it sweeter. Some have even added Nutella or chocolate chips and butterscotch, though the bread is not inherently sweet because of the peanut butter.

The best part about this peanut butter bread is that it does not have to rise because it is a quick bread that utilizes baking powder. That means you can just mix it all up in one bowl, place the dough in a pan, and put it straight in the oven. Viola, fresh bread from the oven in just a matter of minutes, not hours.

How to make no-yeast peanut butter bread

To make this very easy no-yeast peanut butter bread at home, you only need a few pantry staples. For dry ingredients, you will need all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. The wet ingredients are just milk and peanut butter. Of course, you can add in Nutella, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, or white chocolate chips. Whatever you have on hand and want to use if you want a sweeter, dessert-type bread.

The oven should be pre-heated to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Then just use a whisk to combine the dry ingredients before pouring in the wet ingredients. Once combined into a dough, just put in a pan and into the oven for one hour.

Another tip to make this process even easier than it already is: microwave the peanut butter. This will make it more liquid and easier to mix into the rest of the dough's dry ingredients along with the milk (via Spoon University).
