Belgian Fruit Beer Brownies

Belgian Fruit Beer Brownies

Here I go baking again… with beer! I’ve baked with beer before – Banana Beer Bread and Milk Stout Chocolate Chip Cookies – both turned out perfectly! I am constantly looking for new ways to add beer to my cooking and baking. When we picked up this Belgian Style Fruit Beer – Cherazz – from Big Rock Brewery, I instantly thought the sweetness of the beer would be perfect in a dessert – and that’s the story of how these…

Wake-Up Coffee Porter Granola

Wake-Up Coffee Porter Granola

Granola is more my husband’s kind of breakfast; I am more of an egg white and ham sandwich type… or chicken breakfast sausages with eggs… or steak and eggs… savoury breakfast – that’s me! But I saw a recipe in one of my Beer Advocate magazines for a coffee porter granola and played on that idea to make this wake-up coffee granola for Eric! He likes it best with some coconut Greek yogurt! 

Banana Beer Bread

Banana Beer Bread

I love banana bread and I think you all know by now that I love beer; so it seemed like a no-brainer to me to make a banana beer bread! This recipe for banana beer bread turned out to be so moist, fluffy and held a lot of both nutty and banana flavours! You can use any beer you might have on hand, but I would suggest a brown ale because they tend to be nutty, malty and loaded with…

Whole Wheat Hot Cross Buns with Dried Berries

Whole Wheat Hot Cross Buns with Dried Berries

First off I have to admit I have never had a hot cross bun before, and I am not sure why?! They are bready, and I like bready things; and they also have a lot of flavour with all the spices added, and I love spice! So since it’s Easter, I have been seeing a lot of hot cross bun recipes floating around the web, and as I checked them out, I realized I needed to make them! I changed…

Rhubarb Strawberry Crumble with a Twist

Rhubarb Strawberry Crumble with a Twist

It’s part two of my rhubarb month-long blogging event and today is a dessert of rhubarb strawberry crumble with a twist! I’ve eaten a lot of rhubarb in my life and have had it a few different ways. A staple summer cake for me is the Alberta rhubarb cake, which my mom makes for me every year. Once I even made it myself too, but it’s much better when mom makes it! I’ve also used rhubarb in my easy Greek…
