It seems I have been permanently afflicted. Every time I see or hear the words "peanut butter and jelly," a certain little ditty pops into my head.
What's worse is that it stays in my head...for hours. At least I know I'm not the only one to whom this happens. Other people are stuck on the the jingle as well.
Needless to say, "it's peanut butter jelly time" ran through my mind constantly as I a) made these mini loaves, b) ate these mini loaves, and c) wrote about these mini loaves. Yes, it's peanut butter jelly time right now.
Peanut Butter Jelly Time Loaves
(based on this recipe)
6 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup sugar
approx 1 cup jam, jelly, or preserves
Preheat oven to 350F and prepare baking apparatus.
In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, peanut butter, eggs and milk until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Fill each mold in selected baking dish about halfway up with batter. Top each with a hearty helping of fruity spread and cover with remaining batter.
I baked my mini-loaves for about 40 minutes, check muffins after 17-20 minutes, or just rely on the ol' toothpick test.
