I’m slightly late to the game with this recipe, as the original was posted to Reddit last year and became internet famous during quarantine. It harks back to a 1930’s Five Roses Flour cookbook published at the height of the Great Depression, and contains recipes for home cooks who may not have a large stock of fresh ingredients.
I did some research before making this recipe because lots of people have made this bread. Almost every account had the same recommendation – more peanut butter. I made the version as written the first time around and agreed with everyone else – more peanut butter!
