For some the idea of home baked bread is far more appealing than the reality of the effort it can take to mix, knead and prove a good dough. Others turn towards their trusty bread making machines which deliver consistent results time after time. However, if you’re looking to get your hands dirty and make a quick loaf without any fuss, Barrets Ridge Beer Bread Mix is for you.
Making it couldn’t be simpler, empty the contents of the mix into a bowl and add 330ml of a beer or cider of your choice. It’s interesting to experiment with the drink you add as each can result in a varying taste, for example certain ciders can add a little sweetness to the finished bread.
Once the flour and cider or beer have been quickly mixed into a batter, empty it into a lightly greased loaf tin and bake for 45 minutes. The results are amazing, a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
