Happy National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!!! (Peanut Butter and Jelly Breakfast Cake)

Happy National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!!! (Peanut Butter and Jelly Breakfast Cake)

For those of you that didn’t know, it just happens to be National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. Yes, there is such a day. I think there is pretty much a day for every kind of food you could dream up….National Strawberry Ice Cream Day, National Popcorn Day, National Fig Newton Day…..the list goes on and on. I just so happened to come across the date for National PB&J Day when I was searching for a recipe.

I do think the combo of Peanut Butter and Jelly should be celebrated, though. There are not many other combos that are quite so fantastic; other than chocolate and PB, of course. In fact one report I read, said that the average American consumes 1,500 Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches by the age of 18….wowsers! Supposedly, the popularity of PB&Js soared after WWII because they had become a staple for the soldiers serving in the war.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter, crunchy or creamy
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (I would recommend either all-purpose or whole wheat pastry flour, not plain whole wheat.)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (any milk product will work)
  • about 3-4 tbsp of your favorite jelly or jam (I used Trader Joe’s blueberry preserves…..the more jelly, the better.)
