Beer Bread

I will preface this post with the fact that I’ve never made home-made bread before, and I felt that this would be a great first start since there is no yeast that needs to be involved in the bread baking process! The first time I attempted this bread I used an “unknown” flour that was given to me. The bag was never marked and I was wishful that it was self-rising flour. Well I was very much wrong! lol… it must have been all-purpose flour. So I went to the store on the hunt for self-rising flour immediately. Well that self-rising flour sat in the pantry for a few months until I finally gained the courage to try this easy bread again. I’m so glad I gave it another “go”. It was a thick hearty bread with a great crusty and soft middle! Perfect home-made bread in my opinion. I used Heineken as my beer of choice; however, you can use whatever beer you have on hand. Keep in mind that the darker the beer the more fragrant the bread. I’d like to try a lighter beer my next go around to see how the tastes varies. So, the lesson of this recipe: You must use self-rising flour to make this easy bread! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Oh and whatever you have leftover you can freeze it and thaw it out for another day.

This is another fabulous recipe from the Super Supper cookbook

    Looks good girly! :-) If you want to take an adventure into yeasty breads, my english muffin bread is a good start. It's not scary and doesn't require loads of kneading!
