Ale Bread

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 3 hours

Makes

1 loaf (about 1-1/2 pounds)

For a tender white loaf that's a bit moister and denser than other breads, try this simple recipe shared by Jeannine Norder of Eaton Rapids, Michigan. It's equally good whether you use beer of ginger ale.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm beer or ginger ale (70° to 80°)
  • 1/3 cup water (70° to 80°)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

Directions

  1. In bread machine pan, place all ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select basic bread setting. Choose crust color and loaf size if available. Bake according to bread machine directions (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).

    I just made the edited version, not noticing the change with water, added extra flour! Hope it turns out okay!
