Pesto Beer Bread

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Mandy

I love pesto so this bread is great, the yeast in the beer helps it rise nice & high. Goes great with a nice big bowl of soup. Feel free to add parmesan, sun-dried tomatoes etc for variation

Can't wait to try it, especially since it has no yeast. Sure would like the measurements in american standards though I guess I could look it up. Doesn't it need to rise before baking?
