Reviews forBeernana Bread
"roseannf, wheat beer is beer that is brewed with over 50% malted wheat as opposed to malted barley. I would suggest trying this recipe with Paulaner Hefe-Weizen. It has kind of a banana-like aroma and taste (and is also very good). Now I gotta try this bread too."
"Want to try this really bad, but don't know what kind of beer is "wheat" beer? Can someone give me famous brand names so I can buy some??"
"Not for high altitude."
"Your mathematical logic is spot on! This is my favorite banana bread recipe, and I will make it whenever I have the spare bananas. Moist and delicious, fabulous crust. I salute you sir. I also posted this on my All The Cooks App, crediting you of course. :) Thanks for a stellar recipe."
"I enjoyed the flavor of this bread, but I may try putting sugar on the top next time. The beer is subtle, but I can taste it. The texture is amazing."
"Why rate something you haven't even tried? If it's too "weird" for you then move on and don't give a rating - especially if you haven't made it. Actually it wasn't weird at all, I made this today for company. Big hit everyone enjoyed it...and not one person thought it was weird."
"How or WHY would you rate something you didn't even TRY! Excellent!!"
"Haven't tried it.....sounds so weird!!"
