Herby Beer Bread Recipe


This herby beer bread recipe uses dark beer and a wonderful herb blend to give it a nutty texture. It can also be made with a soft drink, like root beer, cola or lemon-lime soda. herby beer bread

Yield: 6

I use a basic beer bread recipe and add my own herb blend. You can make this with a soft drink, like root beer, cola or lemon-lime soda, but the flavor will not be as complex and yeasty as when you use a dark beer. The alcohol cooks out as the bread bakes. The lavender flowers give the bread a nutty texture.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried lavender flowers
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint leaves, crumbled
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely grated
  • 12 ounces dark beer
  • 1 teaspoon rolled oats, sunflower seeds or sesame seeds

Directions

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, herbs and cheddar in a mixing bowl.

2. Stir in beer and mix until combined.

3. Spread in a greased 8-inch loaf pan; top with rolled oats, raw sunflower seeds or sesame seeds.

4. Bake until golden-brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
