I am submitting this recipe by request. I have not tried it, as we have never had alcoholic beverages around, but I understand it makes a terrific loaf of bread! I got this recipe from "The Bread Lover's Cookbook" by: Elizabeth Hensberger. I am sure it is a good one. Elizabeth Hensberger is a Master Breadmaker. Enjoy!

Ingredients

9 oz
beer
3 Tbsp
olive oil
4 1/2 c
bread flour
1/3 c
granulated sugar
1 tsp
salt
2 1/2 tsp
saf yeast or 1 tbsp bread machine yeast

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Pour the beer into a bowl and let stand at room temperature for a few hours to go flat.
2
Place all the ingredients in the pan according to the order in the manufacturer's instructions. Set crust on dark and program for the Basic cycle; press Start. (This recipe is NOT suitable for use with the Delay Timer.)
3
When the baking cycle ends, immediately remove the bread from the pan and place it on a rack. Let cool to room temperature before serving.

I so appreciate of the comments, and am grateful that you tried my recipe. It's great when you are able to contribute a recipe that someone enjoys!

I actually do not drink beer, but had this recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks and another JAP member asked for one, so I gave it to her. I have had nothing but great reviews by anyone who has tried it. I can't explain the "let it sit until flat" thing...only that it is what the recipe calls for.

Thanks again for all of the wonderful comments!

I don't understand the "let the beer stand until it goes flat".
I make Cin's Beer Bread all the time and I have never let my beer go flat.
I use it right out of the refrig (or if I want to use it at room temp I don't keep it in the refrig).

Today I made "Cinnamon Beer Bread".....I added a bit more sugar (actually an extra 1/2 c) to my mix and 3t of ground cinnamon (I use Vietnamese / Saigon cinnamon).
You can more or less cinnamon depending on your taste.
You can also add "plumped" raisins to you batter if you want Cinnamon-Raisin Beer Bread.
