Mellow Bakers - Beer Barley Bread

As my second challenge I made Beer Barley Bread.  The process itself was very similar to the other breads we have made but I got a chance to incorporate other grains.  I liked feel of the bread and the texture.  Mine also didn't come out the way I was hoping because I didn't exactly follow the cooking instructions.  I was kinda running out of the door and I didn't get a chance to perform the steaming technique instead I just baked it in dry heat.  I hope to try this again and actually follow the directions better :D.  The Daughter attacked the bread, it was pretty funny since it had a tough crust.  I also believe the since I made smaller rolls, it wasn't thick enough to be soft interior.  I would probably use a better beer.  I just used what was in the house which equaled MGD.  The taste was pretty good.  I'm still trying to get used to not putting sugar in bread.  I am so used to that. 


  1. The bread looks great! I've never made beer bread but I definitely feel kneading bread is a great way to relax.

  2. The rolls look great and good to hear you like its flavor.

  3. Rolls are a great idea! I'm curious about how they compare to the bigger loaves . . . . =)

  4. Yum! That bread looks wonderful!

  5. The outside looks really tasty! Nice job.
