I’ve never heard of beer bread before but I encountered it while browsing through lots of food blogs.  Since the kids aren’t here right now, I decided to give it a try today.

It was very easy to make and quick too!  I didn’t really know what to expect but I actually liked it.  I loved the buttery crust and the dense soft bread.  It’s a little sweet and doesn’t really taste like beer but you can definitely smell the beer.  I had it for dinner with left-over lasagna.  I’ll probably have it again fore breakfast tomorrow.
