Yeasty Flavors without the Fuss – Easy Bread Recipe

Companion Recipe to April 2012 Friends Drift Inn TV Show

Beer Bread is a quick bread with Big Daddy flavors. I like bread with character; but I am really pressed for time today. I need a stir and go recipe. Beer Bread fills the bill.

Beer Bread Recipe featuring Garlic and Good Shepherd Sheep Cheese

Baking bread, it is one of those rituals that calms me and makes the kitchen smell like home!

The taste yields that yeasty richness of traditional artisian bread, but there is no need to fuss with letting the loaf rise, punching it down, and working the dough.Did I mention stir and go?

Beer gives this bread a little lift, making it a medium density. I always add a little fresh garlic. Sometimes I like to incorporate cheeses and fresh herbs. I prefer sorghum for the sweetness, but honey works well too. Try this recipe for the base of an open-faced meatloaf sandwich. You’ll think John Travolta has asked you to take a two-stepping dance around your kitchen floor. Crank up the jukebox!
