Love chocolate and peanut butter? Then this Molten Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread was made just for you. It’s over the top amazing. It’s a loaf of peanut butter bread with a molten chocolate center. Yes – you read that right – a molten chocolate center in a bread! You’re welcome.
There isn’t a better combination on the planet than chocolate and peanut butter, a match made of perfection. And while I never thought it was possible to beat a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, this Molten Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread comes close.
This recipe was inspired by one of the most amazing pumpkin bread recipes I’ve ever laid my eyes on over at Half Baked Harvest. Their Molten Chocolate Pumpkin Streusel Bread is divine. When I saw the picture of a chocolate molten center, I knew I needed it in my life. My only thought was peanut butter bread would be a perfect substitute for the pumpkin. Don’t get me wrong, I love pumpkin bread, but with molten chocolate, peanut butter is just better.
Grab a cold glass of milk and bake up a loaf of this Molten Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread. Trust me – after you eat the first loaf in one sitting, you’ll need to make another for the rest of your family.
- Molten Chocolate
- Molten Chocolate
- 5 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
- Peanut Butter Bread
- 1 cup fat-free milk
- 2 large eggs
- 2⁄3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup Adam's peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
To make the bread, first prepare the molten filling.
In a small microwavable mixing bowl, add in the chocolate and peanut butter. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until chocolate and peanut butter are well combined and smooth. Next, whisk together the egg and sugar in a separate bowl until pale in color; this took me 3-4 minutes. Gently stir in the melted chocolate into the egg mixture. Last, stir in the sea salt. Place the bowl of molten chocolate in the fridge while you make the peanut butter bread.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, add milk, eggs, sugar, and peanut butter and mix on high until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
Pour batter into the prepared 9-x-5-inch loaf pan.
Remove molten from fridge.
Using a spoon, create a little pocket in the middle of the peanut butter bread batter for the chocolate. Don’t stress, the batter will sink in. As you are creating the pocket in the batter, spoon the chocolate into the middle of the bread, creating a row of chocolate right down the center (see picture). Using a butter knife, carefully spread some of the peanut butter bread batter over the chocolate, to enclose the molten chocolate center. Don’t stress for perfection, it will still turn out and taste amazing.
Bake for 55-60 minutes. Let the bread rest and cool for 15 minutes before removing it from the pan.
