What you need to know about yeast-free peanut butter viral bread
Move, starters of sourdough. There is a new bread that is going viral, and it is much easier and less time consuming. If you haven't heard of peanut butter bread, it's time to be introduced. This unleavened quickbread can be made from items you probably already have in your pantry and can be put together in just an hour or so (via Today)
Bread first appeared seven months ago in Reddit from a 1932 Canadian cookbook, Five roses: a guide to good cooking. Initially, the Reddit recipe was inspired by a YouTube video of Glen and Friends Cooking. Now people are baking this bread at home and customizing it with whatever they want to make it sweeter. Some have even added Nutella, or chocolate and caramel chips, though the bread isn't inherently sweet due to peanut butter.
The best part of this peanut butter bread is that it doesn't have to get up because it is a quick bread that uses baking powder. That means you can mix it all up in a bowl, place the dough in a pan, and place it directly in the oven. Viola, bread fresh from the oven in minutes, not hours.
How to make unleavened peanut butter bread
To make this unleavened peanut butter bread very easy at home, you only need a few pantry staples. For dry ingredients, you'll need all-purpose flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. The wet ingredients are just milk and peanut butter. Of course, you can add Nutella, chocolate chips, caramel chips, or white chocolate chips. What you have on hand and want to use if you want a sweeter bread, dessert type.
The oven must be preheated to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Then use a mixer to combine the dry ingredients before pouring in the wet ingredients. Once combined into a dough, simply place in a pan and in the oven for an 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 with the rest of the dry ingredients of the dough along with the milk (via Spoon university)
