Beer Bread (Bread Machine)

By Amy Alusa amyalulsa

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!

    I have been told you can use any carbonated beverage in place of the beer.
    The recipe I have makes a bread more like a quick bread without the yeast. So this recipe may need the beer, but since it is allowed to go flat I think it is more for the beer flavor and not the rising power of the carbonation.
