READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by BadgerLuv

I found this recipe on BellaOnline. I altered it slightly, partially due to what I had in the house and partially due to misreading the recipe (oops!). Anyway, what I ended up with was delicious! It is chewy and has a great crumb. This will be my go-to bread when I decide to bake. I hope you enjoy it! Original recipe:

Top Review by Chef Doopy

I really wanted this recipe to work for me. I have been on a search for a great GF beer bread (since I had some in my fridge). I attempted to make this bread twice... both ended up in the compost bin. I used the exact ingredients and followed the directions as stated. The first loaf ended up really dense and sticky. I figured that it hadn't cooked for nearly enough time. I made the second loaf and it looked beautiful until I cut it open. There was a huge hollow at the top and all the bread dough was compressed into a sticky dense brick at the bottom. I still decided to taste it and it was just awful. Sorry, It just did not work for me.
