I gave a friend a bread of the month club subscription - I'd make whatever bread she asked me to once a month - for christmas this year. So far it's been pretty rocky - I'm not living up to my subscription as best as I could.
This weekend, I was asked to make Honey Beer Bread, which looked really tasty. It turned out pretty good!
It tasted just like beer and honey, but not in an overpowering way. I think the beer we chose had too much yeast in it, or it wasn't warm enough when I used it, because things turned out a bit more dense inside the bread than I would have liked. Still really good on a cold day like today!
We also made the second part of the recipie which involved grilled cheese, dijon mustard, and caramelized onions. Super tasty once they were grilled panini-style.
I definitely would try the bread again - perhaps trying to find a milder beer, and maybe increasing the temperature during cooking to get more of a crumb on the outside and less dense inside.
