Peanut Butter Bread Recipe-Late 1800's

This week, at our house,  is the countdown to Ben's graduation and life is buzzing!!  I'm running around in a flurry of cap, gown, tassel, blue and white napkins, blue and white balloons, batteries for the get the idea!  Today is the day that I order his cake.... and accomplish  the rest of  the items on the "Today List".....tomorrow will have its own list!  I'm making my case for why this posting is going to be brief, but hope you enjoy this very old recipe from a Clabber Girl Baking Powder pamphlet entitled,  "Clabber Girl Baking Book"  that I bought  at an estate auction.
Fun Fact:  Did you know that Hulman and Company, the makers of Clabber Girl Baking Powder, was founded in Terre Haute, Indiana in 1848?  When my pamphlet was printed, the ad inside says that it was, "10 cents for a 10 ounce can at all grocers".  The ad slogan at that time was, "All's Well That Ends Well".  I'm hoping that applies to high school graduations, too!    ~Marcia

Peanut Butter Bread

2 C sifted flour
1 1/2 tsp Clabber Girl Baking Powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 C sugar
1 C milk
2 eggs
1 C peanut butter

Sift dry ingredients together.  Beat milk, eggs and peanut butter together with egg beater, then add gradually to dry ingredients while beating with a spoon.  Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan, size about 8 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches.  Bake 1 hour in a moderate oven (350 degrees F).
