When the days start to cool down, two things tend to happen in our homes: we make soup and bake bread. The truth is, there’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked bread. My family is from a small town in Mexico that’s famous for its excellent bread and I remember walking its streets as a child enjoying the aroma that flooded out from every bakery. And every time we bake bread at home, all those beautiful memories return.
Baking bread is one my husband’s favorite activities as well, so I accepted his suggestion to bake it with beer. In this case we used a porter beer because its flavor is fuller than a lager, but not as strong as a stout. Porter gives is a rich taste that combines well with the sweetness of raisins.
Serve as a side to a tasty soup or eat it fresh out of the oven with butter. Either way, it’s delicious!
