The Bread Bible: Beer Bread

Beer BreadI baked this in early August, and blogging it at the end of September. Memory is a little vague on the details of the baking and the eating, I'm afraid. The pictures remind me that I used the bottle of Guinness that had been tucked away in the back of the fridge for a while, and that it rose enthusiastically. I used the mixer method in my KitchenAid (almost always my choice for bread these days), and seem to recall that it was a pretty well-behaved dough in the mixing and shaping. It's a good-tasting bread, too--a bit extra yeasty from the beer, I think, and a nice amount of 'chew'.

  1. Gosh Nancy, that's a beautiful color and crumb. You really got a good rise out of it, too.

  2. Oh I was going to say the same thing as Vicki - the colour of the bread is lovely. I found mine to be a bit beery.
