Mouth watering crowd pleasing bread - Not so much for sandwiches but great for a breakfast bread by adding dried cranberries or blue berries. Wonderful with dinner as a garlic bread just add garlic to the butter & I add cilantro to the flour. Get creative
Sifting flour for bread recipes is a must-do. Most people just scoop the 1 cup measure in the flour canister and level it off. That compacts the flour and will turn your bread into a “hard biscuit”. That’s because the flour isn’t being sifted! If you do not have a sifter, use a spoon to spoon the flour into the 1 cup measure. Try it once the “correct” way and you will see an amazing difference in the end product.
You can using non-alcoholic beverages instead of beer. That is fine to do but I highly recommend adding a packet of Dry Active Yeast or 2 teaspoons of Bread (Machine) Yeast so that you get a proper rise.
The final result should be a thick, hearty and very tasteful bread, NOT A BRICK!
For a great dessert bread follow the recipe but add1/4 cup of sugar & instead of beer use Mtn Dew Code Red & add Chocolate chips - After its cooled, frost it with green frosting & now you have a watermelon cake.
