My sister-in-law gave me a bag (mini sack?) of Barrett’s Ridge Beer Bread to try, and I finally got round to making it two weeks ago to accompany my first ever batch of homemade potato and leek soup (recipe courtesy of Alida from Simply Delicious). Both soup and loaf were a huge success!
If the thought of ‘making bread’ scares you – do not be afraid! It’s called ‘beer bread’ for a reason: all you have to add to the premixed bag of ingredients, is one times 330ml can of beer – any beer! How much easier could it get?
There are four flavours to choose from: Original, Garlic & Herb, Chilli & Garlic, and Italian Cheese (we tried the cheese one) and the easiest way to lay your hands on some, is to order it directly from Yuppiechef.
I added some chopped up pumpkin seeds to the top of my loaf (something I had in the kitchen that I wanted to use up) but you really don’t have to add anything extra – it tastes delicious as is – crunchy crust, dense and flavoursome inside, great with soups, a braai, anything really – TRY IT!
