Directions

  1. Stir 1 tsp. sugar into warm water. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and let it proof.
  2. While your yeast proofs whisk together melted butter, eggs, milk, peanut butter and vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients: sugar, salt and 3 cups of flour.
  4. With a wooden spoon stir yeast and water into the flour mixture, followed by the egg mixture.

  7. Knead the dough a second time and let it rise for 1 more hour.

  9. Separate dough into three equal pieces. Roll these into strands of equal length. Roll each strand in struesel, pressing it into the dough with your hands as necessary.
  10. Braid dough, tucking under edges, and placing it into a loaf pan. Sprinkle extra streusel on top.
  11. Preheat oven to 400 degrees for twenty minutes. Bake the loaf at this temperature for ten minutes.
  12. Lower temperature to 350 and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool. Devour.
