I love beer and I love bread. The two together are almost as awesome as my best friend. This recipe is fabulous in many ways. For example you only need 3 ingredients to make this bread, you can use any kind of beer you like or have in your fridge that you need to use up, and the outcome of this bread is delicious. My cousin gave me this recipe when I was visiting family back home last month. I’m always open to testing new recipes for the blog and was blown away by how amazing this recipe is. Since the first time I made it last month, Brandon and I have made it a few more times with different beers and playing around with adding other ingredients to the bread. Although I did enjoy the foccacia style loaf we made last week adding onions and garlic to the batch, I prefer just the plain bread and spreading butter or jam on it.
You don’t need to love beer to like the bread. Depending on the style of beer you use (ale, stout) will determine the flavor of the bread (sweet, hoppy) For this batch I used up the last of my pumpkin seasonal beer. This bread is a nice addition to add to your holiday baking list. You more than likely already have all the ingredients need to make this bread in your house so why not give it a try. If you’re feel extra spontaneous, try making a beer and cheese soup to dip your bread in 🙂
