This morning I made beer bread. The recipe I used can be found here: http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/whole-wheat-beer-bread/Detail.aspx.
A photo journey…
I like to start baking by assembling all my ingredients on a tray, so I know where everything is. If everything else goes wrong, I won’t have to scramble for ingredients.
I get my tools ready (not shown, bottle opener, measuring cups and spoons, spatula).
First all the dry ingredients get combined in a big mixing bowl.
The dry ingredients get combined thoroughly.
Pour the beer into the mix, set on slow.
It looks like the mixer is moving wicked fast, but that’s still on slow.
Notice that the mixture is lumpy – don’t worry about that.
It goes into the oven for 50-60 minutes (I put it in for 52 minutes – no special reason).
Everything that needed cleaning up – this bread is super easy to make.
The finished product! It rises a bit (not a ton), but certainly enough. The bread definitely tastes like whatever beer you use; I used a home brew that is a clone of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. The taste of this bread is almost effervescent, almost bubbly and definitely has the taste of pale ale. It’s really flavorful and thick, without being too heavy.
