Stout Beer Bread with Pecan and Prune

Garrison Wayne


I love to cook with beer. It lends a dimension of flavor with such ease and never seems to over-power. This Stout Beer Bread is very easy to make. Pop it in the oven a couple of hours before your meal and you'll be good to go. It goes well with simple, yet hearty meats, sausages, or sharp cheeses.
