Another recipe for the ingredient of the month... "beer". I haven't tried this yet, so please let me know what you think! Makes one 1 1/2 lb. loaf
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup beer
- 1 tablespoon butter or 1 tablespoon margarine
- 2 1⁄2 cups bread flour
- 1⁄2 cup rye flour
- 1 tablespoon gluten flour
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast or 1 teaspoon bread machine yeast
- 1⁄2 cup dark raisin
- Add the ingredients to the machine according to the manufacturer's directions.
- Select the basic white bread cycle.
This makes an outstanding loaf of bread. The flavors are very unique, unlike any yeast bread I have ever made before. It was extremely moist. The spices gave it a wonderful aroma and a subtle spicy flavor. The texture was fine, but not so dense as to be heavy. I would classify it as a sweet bread, which seemed odd to me since it is a rye bread. I used dark rye flour (because that is what I had on hand) and Bud Light Beer. You really must try this one! Thanks for posting Cindy Lynn!
This bread is sweet but not too sweet. I used a pumpkin ale. I was planning on making with a butternut squash soup. I had to change plans but I think it would have worked.
This was my 1st beer bread venture- and wow! I used the only bottle of beer we had in the house: Bud Light. Turned out great. No need to add a thing- this bread is sweet and is great as a stand-alone snack.
