This is going to be a spur of the moment post, but I stumbled across some information that I thought was worth sharing. First of all, the GreaterGood site (https://greatergood.com/) and related sites (the Hunger Site, etc.) are allowing 4 clicks a day in order to help the people, animals and areas most affected at this time. Just go onto their sites once every 6 hours and click. We are lucky for the most part in this country, but I have read haunting accounts of the desperation of the starving people in other countries. These people were suffering before the pandemic, and now it is so much worse. I’m so glad that we have been given a way to help these people.
My son found a Depression-Era recipe on Reddit. It’s very easy, uses ingredients that you already probably have on hand, and is perfect for those times when you are craving a treat. Good idea for quarantining.
Peanut Butter Bread
2 c flour 1/2 tsp
4 tsp baking powder 1/2 c peanut butter
1/4 c sugar 1 1/3 c milk
Mix dry ingredients together, stir in the milk and then mix in the peanut butter. Bake in a moderately slow oven (325 – 350) for an hour. For a richer peanut butter bread with a more cake-like texture, use 2 eggs. Reduce baking powder to 3 tsp and milk to 1 cup. Increase sugar to 1/2 cup. Raisins, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or butterscotch chips may be added if desired.
