Honey Beer Bread!
When I saw a recipe for golden, soft honey beer bread on Pinterest, my curiosity was instantly piqued. When I realized the recipe was coming from Gimme Some Oven, I bookmarked it to make, like ASAP. The ingredient list is short and sweet, and probably means you do not need to make a trip to the grocery store. The only beer my boyfriend had in our fridge was Guinness, so I went with it. Amazingly, the dark beer and light honey combined to make a very flavorful, fluffy loaf. I was blown away by the simplicity - 5 ingredients, no kneading, total time from start to finish was less than an hour. I highly recommend this for any carb lover out there! I would like to experiment with a lighter beer next time, maybe a pale ale, as the dark Guinness resulted in a slightly bitter aftertaste (which my family still seemed to enjoy).
