    Marysdottir's Note:

    Like many of my favourite recipes, this came from Bon Appetit magazine. It appeared in the October 1983 edition as part of an article by Rita Sorci. It makes a lovely sandwich with dry salami and mayo and even makes really good toast. I adapted it to make a 2 pound loaf using dough cycle in the breadmaker. The amounts of yeast and salt seem high but they work out very well.

    1. 1
      Bring beer to a boil in a saucepan and simmer 3-5 minutes. Do not let it boil over.
    2. 2
      Measure beer into a measuring cup and add water as needed to make 1 1/2 cups. Let cool if necessary until the right temperature for your machine.
    3. 3
      Place all ingredients except for the egg, water and 1/4 tsp salt in your breadmaker in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
    4. 4
      Using "dough" cycle, start breadmaker and allow to complete its mixing, kneading and rising.
    5. 5
      Transfer dough to a clean oiled counter top and knead lightly.
    6. 6
      Grease a large baking sheet. Form dough into a long narrow loaf and transfer to baking sheet. Combine glaze ingredients (if you are using them) and brush over the loaf. Cover loosely with greased waxed paper, place in a warm area and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.
    7. 7
      Bake at 375º about 30-32 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
    8. 8
      Cool on a rack before slicing.

      This bread is awesome and easy to make. We love this bread so much that we have been making variations of this recipe with much success. For example we use Leinenkugel's Honeyweiss for this recipe. But another favorite is to use whole-wheat flour, remove the caraway seed, switch to Leinenkugel's Creamy Dark and add dried cranberries (soaked in hot beer for 10 minutes). It's a beer and bread lovers dream. Just mix and match your favorite beers with additional ingredients and you have winner after winner. We have not yet tried the glaze and it doesn't need anything more.

      Very nice! I used a wheat beer and realized it made sense to cook off the alcohol, since it would retard the yeast otherwise. I sprinkled additional caraway seeds on the top and got a beautiful, flavorful, nicely textured loaf. Made for Top Favorites of 2009.

      This is really delicious! The beer really adds a nice flavor to the bread. They only thing I would change is the amount of caraway seed. Maybe double the amount for our tastes. Bread went well with soup, and made a great sandwich. Made for Fall 2009 My 3 Chefs game.
