I love bread, all kinds. There's just something about warm bread right out of the oven. Mmmm. Beer bread is pretty well known, and not only is it delicious, but it's pretty simple to put together. So today at work, I wondered if our Wiley Hard Cider could be used in bread. Answer: YES. And YUM.
This bread is amazingly easily and so good. The melted butter used creates a crunchy crust and the inside is moist with a hint of our cider. Paired with some homemade strawberry jam...(strawberries courtesy of Prellwitz Produce)... and wallah, comfort food. And did I mention easy? Check out the recipe below.
Wiley Hard Cider Bread
3 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
12 oz Wiley Hard Cider
1/2 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all dry ingredients. Add hard cider and mix well. Pour melted butter just to coat bottom of pan, and grease all sides. Pour batter into pan and pour remaining butter on top of bread.
Bake 45 minutes and check. Bake in 5 minute increments until done. Cool on rack.
