PB and AP Swirl Bread Roll

Are you guessing what's peeking out of this delicious swirly bread? It's....peanut butter! Yes, that's right, this is your favorite sandwich now in roll form! Yummy swirl of peanut butter and jelly. Sounds delicious, right?

And it looks pretty cool when you cut it too! I've always wanted to make a roll bread, but for some reason I never got around to it. Finally I did, and boy am I glad I did. It was amazing! I even had a layer of chopped pecans to give it an added crunch!
Have I ever showed you guys my bread machine? It's so wonderful and easy to use. Maybe that's why I don't make a lot of roll breads. All I have to do is throw all the ingredients into the machine and presto fresh bread every morning! The one I have is the Zojirushi 1lb bread machine.

Impressive, yea? I totally recommend buying one because it makes great fresh bread, and perfect dough for these rolls. The machine bakes it for you, but if you pull it out before the last rising, shape it the way you want to, let it rise a little more, and then bake it, it's a super easy way to make shaped bread without having to knead the bread and all that hard stuff.

Peanut Butter and Apricot Pecan Swirl Bread Roll
1 dough:
-3/4 cup water (Hot if not using a bread maker)
-2 cups bread flour
-2 Tbsp. all purpose flour

-2 1/2 Tbsp. dry milk
-1 tsp. salt
-1 1/2 Tbsp. butter
-1 tsp. active dry yeast

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup jelly

1. Layer the ingredients in your bread maker, press start
2. Pull out dough before it begins baking, (before last rise)
3. On a lightly floured surface roll out dough
4. Evenly spread peanut butter and jelly. Sprinkle with pecans
5. Roll, and bake for 20 minutes at 350˚F
6. Enjoy the swirly goodness!


  1. Oh my goodness does that look delicious! I love anything peanut butter and jelly so this sounds sooo good. :)The addition of pecans is a great idea, I'm definitely trying out this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Mmmm....this looks so good! Especially in the first shot!

    Your bread machine is the same brand as my rice maker!! haha....I only recognise it because of the elephant =) I use a breadmaker to make bread- it's so much easier than kneading! I don't really like the way my bread maker bakes my bread though, although that might have something to do with the breadmaker itself. I bought mine a couple of years ago before I got into baking, so I chose the cheapest one there was......haha. I only use mine for kneading dough =)

  3. This looks perfect and delicious! I would so love a piece of that bread!

  4. Yum! A peanut butter and jelly rolls sounds so good - instead of eating a sandwich for lunch, I would totally eat a slice of your bread!

  5. That is genius. I have stuffed bread with cheese, coconut, and even mashed potato but i never thought to use peanut butter and jelly.

  6. mmm this looks really yummy! i used to have a bread machine, i miss it!

  7. Now that is the ultimate PB&J. Delicious and pretty looking. By the way, I'm also from Hawaii, specifically Maui. Good to come across another local.

  8. Your swirl bread looks delish!!

  9. Lindsey: Thanks! I love anything with peanut butter and jelly too!

    Von: Ooo! I have that rice cooker too! It makes the most amazing rice!!

    Dimah: thanks! :)

    Adriana: Yum, sounds like a delicious lunch!

    Joy: Mashed potatoes? Really that's a combination I should try!

    auroraTedora: Thx! Bread machines are so useful!

    Lisa: That's cool! I wish I could go to maui and eat some guri guri!

    Elle (Almost Bourdain): Thanks!

  10. These look great! I have a weakness for PB, and wow, I would love this. Don't you just love your bread machine?? I've actually worn one out and am on another one. I go thru phases, but use it often. Can't wait to see what else you do with it!!
