  • 2 pounds (1000 gr)
  • 1¼ cups water (at room temperature)

  • ½ cup peanut butter

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 4 cups bread flour

  • 3 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast

  • 2½ pounds (1250 gr)
  • 1¾ cups water (at room temperature)

  • ¾ cup peanut butter

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 5 cups bread flour

  • 4 tablespoons sugar

  • 2¼ teaspoons instant yeast

  • 3 pounds (1500 gr)
  • 2 cups water (at room temperature)

  • 1 cup peanut butter

  • 2½ teaspoons salt

  • 6 cups bread flour

  • 5 tablespoons sugar

  • 2½ teaspoons instant yeast


  1. Open the lid of the bread maker and remove the pan from the machine by pulling it upward.

  2. Make sure the pan is clean and both kneading paddles are in place.

  3. Add all of the ingredients to the bread pan in the order listed, and gently mix them a little bit using a small rubber spatula to make sure that the ingredients blend perfectly in the machine. You do not need to mix them too much since the bread machine will do the real work.

  4. Put the bread pan back in the bread machine pressing it down so that it clicks into its place, and close the lid.

  5. Plug the bread machine into an outlet and press the “Power” button to turn the machine on.

  6. Use the “Program” button to select the program #2 for the quick cycle.

  7. Press the “Color” button to choose your desired crust color.

  8. Press the “Size” button to choose the weight of the loaf you are making. The time display will also change as you select the size of the bread since larger loaves take longer time to cook.

  9. Press the “Start” button to start the bread making cycle.

  10. The machine will let you know by making a beep sound once the bread making cycle is finished. Open the lid at this time and remove the bread pan out by using a pot holder.

  11. If you do not remove the loaf immediately, the bread machine will automatically go into a warming cycle to keep the bread warm for one hour.

  12. After taking the bread pan out of the machine, flip the pan over and gently tap it to remove the bread. Make sure the kneading paddles are taken out of the bread loaf.

  13. Your peanut butter bread is ready. Slice it and enjoy!

    You can store peanut butter bread in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

    You can freeze peanut butter bread and consume later. To do so, it is better to slice it when it is fresh so that you do not have to reheat the whole bread but as many slices as you need later on. You can toast frozen peanut butter slices straight from the freezer, or reheat them in the oven or air fryer, or on the stove when needed.
