Trader Joe's beer bread mix. Surprisingly good, even made with cheap malt liquor. Dense, good crust, not quite as stretchy or chewy as I'd like. A little too sweet to use as a sandwich bread, but really good with butter. 45 minutes to bake, about 5 minutes prep time--Add beer to mix in a mixing bowl, stir until mixed but not too much, dump in a greased loaf pan, dump melted butter over the top, bake. Directions claim anything carbonated will work, I don't think I would use sweet pop, but plain seltzer might be good.
My wife cooked this tonight. We used Heineken for the beer. It tasted great but very beer-y. Next time probably use Bud. I was worried about feeding it to my kids due to the alcohol but I read online that it burned off during the cooking. Overall pretty good.ReplyDelete
I've switched to a simple recipe The type of beer makes a bigger difference than I would think, but it isn't necessarily that better beer makes better bread. I liked the flavor better when I used cheap malt liquor than when I used Bud.ReplyDelete
