Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bread

Our awesome neighbor invited us over to dinner last week. She spoiled us as usual.  She made burros with homemade re-fried beans, macaroni and cheese, hot dogs in BBQ sauce, deviled eggs and pizza cooked in a frying pan - Many of the foods she knows we like, plus a couple of new things for us to try.  

She had out a fancy tic-tac-toe game and prizes for the winners. Some of the kids played outside before we watched a movie.  Then there was dessert; ice cream with strawberries.  It was a relaxing night with great company.

I wanted to bring something to show our appreciation, so I pulled out a couple of mini loaves of my favorite bread.  I got the recipe from a Wilton pamphlet years ago.  The chocolate adds just the right amount of sweetness, while the peanut butter balances it out.  This was one of the few things I could eat when I had morning sickness.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bread
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter 
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl, cream peanut butter and sugar with an electric mixer.  Add egg, milk and vanilla; mix well.  Mix in flour, baking powder and salt just until blended.  Stir in mini chips.  Fill mini-loaf pans (1/4 size a normal loaf pan) about half full.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Makes 4 mini loaves.
