Here’s a great way to make a classic loaf of white bread special. It’s the addition of beer that gives this white bread loaf a great flavor and texture.

You can use any type of beer that you like. A robust beer like a stout is a good choice but any kind of beer will do. Typically you want the beer to be warm and flat when you add it to the recipe.

INGREDIENTS:
 1 1⁄8 cups beer (9 ounces and you can choose your favorite beer)
 2 tablespoons olive oil
 3 1⁄2 cups bread flour
 1⁄4 cup sugar
 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
 1 3⁄4 teaspoons bread machine yeast
DIRECTIONS:
1

Pour beer into a bowl and let stand at room temperature for a few hours to go flat, or pour into a bread pan and simmer gently for a couple of minutes but make sure it cools to 110°F./43°C before adding to the bread pan

2

Place all ingredients in the pan according to the list in this recipe unless your manufacturer recommends a different order. (The reason some manufacturers recommend a different order is because some machines have a preheat setting that proofs this yeast. This is somewhat rare, but if your manufacturer identifies a different order of ingredients your best to follow those directions.)

3

Set crust on dark and program for the Basic White cycle for a 1.5 pound loaf. Press Start.

4

When the baking cycle ends, immediately remove the bread from the pan and place it on a rack to cool.
