But at 4am today, I was shown a recipe that I absolutely had to try and being the way I am, I tweaked it slightly.
Peanut Butter Bread by Headbangers Kitchen
This is where the original recipe is. I won't be including ingredient amounts and such here because I would prefer everyone to go back to the original recipe where the credit is due.
But the tweaks I'm making are here. And not everything has a photo since I was by myself at 5am and time is of the essence when you're working in the final steps.
I started the recipe by separating my eggs. Egg white went straight into the mixing bowl and egg yolks went into a separate small bowl for later. I didn't measure out the peanut butter at this stage as I am lazy and want to save on washing.
So first thing's first I whipped up my egg whites until peaks formed. Admittedly I did also add a tablespoon of sugar here but this is up to yourself. Then I tipped them out gently into another bowl to use later.
|I did however, measure out the vinegar and bicarb ready to go for a later step.|
The peanut butter was whipped up for about 6 minutes. At this stage, if you want the mix to be even smoother, you can also add a bit of melted butter or oil. But I didn't do that at this stage and left it as is. The next part is the tricky party and it helps if you have any experience making chiffon cake/angelfood cake/macarons and red velvet cakes.
Gently combine the peanut butter mix with the egg whites. To do this, I added the peanut butter to one side of the bowl (or you can use a completely separate bowl if you're not a stingy dishwasher like me) and then only combine the egg whites into the peanut butter 1/4 amount at a time. This will slacken down the peanut butter. I used up about 1/2 to 1/3 of the egg white mix before I started to gently combine everything together.
Once everything is mostly combined (doesn't have to be completely perfect at this stage), mix the vinegar and bicarb together and it will fizz nicely. Quickly mix this into the egg white/peanut butter mix.
This will complete the "almost combined) into a completed mix. I baked mine for about 25 minutes but I also don't have a small loaf pan. I'm a baker so all my loaf bans make giant full sized loaves and I'm guessing the original recipe used a small, bake at home, loaf pan. The loaf about 1.5 to doubled in size during baking. Aaaand comes out more like cake than bread because of the tweaks I made.
