Prepared for Recipe Swap #14, served with "Recipe#287619"- had to add salt, baking powder, and baking soda to wholemeal flour, but it WORKED !! Used Sam Adams Boston Ale, an entire bottle (12 0z.), and had a brown , but light and fluffy bread, seasoned with fresh parsley and dried chives. This was quickly and easily put together and will do again ! Thanks, Sonya01, for a tasty winter treat !
