25 to 30 minutes

Ingredients


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup chopped salted peanuts

Directions


Combine 1-1/3 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl.  Heat milk, water and peanut butter until very warm (120° to 130°F).  Gradually add to flour mixture.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.  Add 1/2 cup flour and peanuts; beat 2 minutes at high speed.  Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.  Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 2 equal portions; roll each to 12 x 7-inch rectangle.  Beginning at short end, roll up tightly. Pinch seam and ends to seal.  Place, seam side down, in 2 greased 8-1/2 x 4-1/2-inch loaf pans.  Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until done.  Remove from pans; cool on wire rack.
