Is there anything better than the smell of freshly baked bread? This homemade rosemary beer bread from the Vegan Comfort Cooking cookbook by Melanie McDonald will surely awaken your appetite.
There’s something about baking bread that gives us so much satisfaction! It’s simple, but such a fantastic skill to have or practice, and the beauty of it is you don’t need to be an expert baker to give it a try. Baking bread requires such basic ingredients and not too much time. Flour, salt, a sprinkle of sugar, and some yeast, and you’re good to go!
Preparing your own bread brings about all the cozy vibes and makes your house feel more like home. The smell and the warmth make your home feel more inviting. Try it! Invite some friends over and bake some bread together, go for a walk, and enjoy some of it later. Sounds delightful, right?
This recipe is not your simple flour and salt bread recipe; it’s rich and full of flavor. The addition of olive oil and vegan butter makes it merely an irresistible and perfect companion to the rosemary and black pepper. Eating this bread straight out of the oven with some vegan butter (like the author suggests) is “out of this world” delicious!
But it’s not all flavor! The texture of this bread is also a 10/10 since it uses beer to get that airy dough and spongy texture. Seriously, this bread is a total must! Have you baked your own bread before? Go ahead and jump into the bred baking pool of possibilities!
