MY REVIEW

This bread is delicious. I just used some beer that was in my fridge, nothing special. It got attacked by my family and then I made another loaf to try measurements for a 2 pound loaf. Turned out perfect.

1 cup warm beer

1 cup warm water

2 3/4 T vegetable oil

4 T sugar

2 t salt

4 c bread flour

3 t active dry yeast

2 T ranch dressing dry mix

Very moist, flavorful bread! This will become a staple at my house!
