I made this bread and wanted to share a picture and some notes.
All in all, the bread is pretty good. It is SUPER easy to make, which is a plus. It took less than 10 minutes to mix things together and get it into the oven. It was extremely moist and had a wonderful texture. The beer bitterness took some getting used to, but after a few slices I was hooked. I could see how it would be really good with a cheesy dip (stay tuned for a semi-healthy cheesy dip in the near future, hopefully).
The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup of butter but states you can get away for 1/4 cup. Honestly, you could get away with 1/8 cup (2 TBSP). This was SUPER buttery and I can’t imagine what it would be like with twice what I used.
Be sure to shift the flour (or at least fluff with a fork). The original recipe has many notes from people who tried the bread and it was too dense.
I plan to to try this recipe again soon with a few modifications – less butter and the addition of some tasty herbs. I’ll update again if I have anything new to share about it.
Note: the beer was DELICIOUS and I recommend you all try it if you ever end up in Hayward, WI. It is brewed by the Angry Minnow.
