Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread

What could be more fun that taking this classic sandwich and making it into an actual loaf of bread!  The loaf itself is infused with creamy, peanut butter with a swirl of raspberry jam.  Soft or toasted, this is sure to bring out the kid in everyone!  This recipe is for the Breville Bread Maker, but can surely be adapted to be make in a regular oven as well.  You will need to pull out the loaf from the bread machine after the second rise to remove the paddle and roll out the dough to spread with jam and re-roll it back up.

1 1/2 cups water
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp sugar
3 3/4 c bread flour
2 tsp. wheat gluten
2 tsp. yeast
1/2 cup raspberry jam - for filling

Place ingredients into bread machine pan in order listed.  Set loaf on basic setting, lightest crust option and 2 lb. loaf size.  Turn machine on and allow to mix, knead and rise twice.  After the second rise and punch down, PAUSE machine then remove the dough and paddle attachment - set paddle attachment aside.  Roll out dough into a 9X16" rectangle, spread with jam leaving a 1" border.  Taking one of the short-sided ends lift 1/3 up and over on top - repeating the with other short end, so you have three 1/3's layered.  Roll up long end , pinching seam and tucking into bottom.  Place back into bread machine loaf pan, cover and turn machine back on.

Remove loaf when done, let cool completely - slice and serve!
