BAKE ME: Elvis Bread

E and I spent the 4th of July in Las Vegas, the land of all things Elvis. I cannot believe that was over a month ago already! My how time flies!

We have been listening to a lot of his music since our visit and last night while baking I took some inspiration from him.  From what I understand, Elvis loved the combination of bananas and peanut butter. Who wouldn’t?! They are quite a delicious pairing.

Instead of going the healthy route by just spreading some roasted peanut butter on banana slices, I decided to bake! It had been a while and my office mates deserve a Friday treat every now and again. The results were delicious! It made for a tasty and special Friday breakfast. Hope you have a great weekend!

Ingredients:

Margarine, ½ cup
White Flour, 1 & ½ cups
Baking Powder, 1 teaspoon
Sea Salt, ½ teaspoon
Baking Soda, ¼ teaspoon
Dying Bananas, 3 mashed
White Sugar, ½ cup
Brown Sugar, ½ cup
Eggs, 2 large
Pure Vanilla Extract, 1 teaspoon
Roasted Peanut Butter, ¼ cup

Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Spray loaf pan with Pam or use parchment paper (my usual choice).
  3. Whisk flour, baking powder, salt and baking powder in separate bowl.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, mix together butter, granulated sugar & brown sugar till creamy.
  5. Slowly add eggs, vanilla and bananas.
  6. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Be careful not to not over mix.
  7. Fold in the peanut butter.
  8. Spread the batter into the loaf pan and bake until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (45-50 minutes).
  9. At 40 minute mark, if top appears to be browning too quickly, cover with foil lightly.
  10. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool.
