Bacaba Black Pepper Beer Bread

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

This is really a quick bread, tender inside with a crunchy crust. You may adjust the amount of black pepper used, but I like it like this! "Bacaba" is the friendly liquor store in Sandwich, Illinois where I first heard of beer bread (from one of their customers), so immediately I had to research it(!). After research and some tweaking, this is the result!

Top Review by Pierre Dance

A perfect companion to your 'Savory Beef & Beer Stew' #79439 it was nicely crusted and tangy inside. I slathered it with lots of real butter as well as using it for dipping the stew's sauce. I shattered my diet completely! It was WONDERFUL! I want to thank you for being a bad influence, I really like that in a person. I'll be doing this bread often. Thanx, Pierre
