Aunt Ellen Trueax's Peanut Butter Bread

I know I should have made this for the kids when they were small, but I am not a huge fan of peanut butter as some are, but just the same, I plan to make this for the holidays this year and see what we've been missing! Maybe I will be sorry I hadn't made this sooner.

Aunt Ellen Trueax's Peanut Butter Bread
                                                  oven 350 degrees
2 cups unbleached flour*
2 tsp baking powder*
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten

Combine flour, baking powder and sugar. Cut in peanut butter with a fork. Add beaten egg and milk. Stir to moisten. Pour into a well-greased 9"x5"x3" loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes, till toothpick comes out clean. Let sit in pan for 10 minutes before inverting onto cooling rack. Turn right side up and cool completely. Once cooled, wrap tight and allow to sit 8 hours or overnight before slicing. You can serve this will your favorite jam and milk for a snack.

*You can use half unbleached flour and half whole wheat flour.
*Use an aluminum-free baking powder.
