That Inez - calling this impossible. It's actually very easy - I don't know what she's thinking :). I used Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout as my beer - it yielded a very hearty taste. I was a little suprised at the texture - it's a soda bread, but lighter than most soda breads that I've made. Takes no time to stir up - I did let mine rise a bit longer than the recipe recommended, though. Thanks, Inez!
Now my husband talked me into making this bread. I don't like beer so I just knew I wasn't going to go for this. Wrong. This is some very good stuff. Easy as can be to make. We ate it warm and it just melted in our mouths. I served it with Miller's Vermont Cheddar Potato Soup. We had an incredible meal. Thanks Inez.
My college room mate used to make this all the time. We made it last week to go with beef-vegetable soup. It was so yummy and easy,easy. Very light texture and nice golden brown crust. Thanks Inez.
This is the first time I have ever made OR tasted beer bread. I was surprised at how easy this was and how well it came out. Made a perfect loaf of beer flavoured bread!
My husband requests this all the time...we have it at least once a week. I have also made this with a can of coke & it comes out great, almost nutty-like. Next I will try Dr. Pepper!! Great Recipe!!!
My best friend's mom used to make beer bread and I always thought is was so delicious. Since alcohol was not allowed to enter into our house, I only got to have it when I was over at her house. Now that I am all grown up, I can do what I want. I was so excited to see this recipe. It is as delicious as I remember and much easier than I thought it would be. Mine had a beautiful light golden crust with soft tender melt in your mouth bread. Yeah. Thanks for providing this recipe.
Guess what I am eating right at the moment? Hmmm, the bread is great! I took self rising wholemeal flour and dark beer and sprinkeld the loaf pan with oats. The result is simply fantastic.
I cannot believe how simple this was to make or how superb it turned out! My kids could make this! I just pulled a loaf out of the oven and slathered on some butter...heaven! It's dense and soft on the inside, with a crusty exterior that is perfection. It isn't sweet and it doesn't taste like beer. This will be a weekly staple in our house, thank you so much for posting!
Easy, easy, easy and tasty, tasty, tasty. Nuff said. Except that today I made it while I was on the phone and accidentally used regular flour. It's in the oven right now, I figured I would bake it just to see what happens. (It was too late to add the stuff to make regular flour into self rising flour - or was it?) I have a feeling it will be like a rock.
The only thing I can say is FANTISTIC; As in a ham or turkey sandwich, warm with butter, with black bean soup. I added 1 large elephant clove of garlic and 2 tbsp of dried basil. Thanks for a very great basic recipr
