Easy Apple Pumpkin Beer Bread

Easy Apple Pumpkin Beer Bread

It’s over. The end of 2020. A lot of us stayed home for a lot of the year, and some of us still need to in order to stay safe. So, what do you do when you are stuck at home in winter? Bread making was all the rage early in the pandemic. I didn’t jump on the bandwagon exactly. But I did make this Easy Apple Pumpkin Beer Bread that turned out amazing! I really do like to use…

Grapefruit Beermosa

Grapefruit Beermosa

It has been above zero for a few days and I was feeling a little springy. The warmer air, especially after an asinine deep freeze of a week of minus 40, had me craving something light, refreshing and citrusy. The Grapefruit Beermosa did just all of that. Using beer to make a cocktail is something I have enjoyed playing around with, such as this Cherry Lime Beer-Aid.

English Mild Beer Bread

English Mild Beer Bread

A beer bread is an easier type of bread to make where you don’t have to knead it or let it rise. It comes out a bit more cake-like, but also tasty and …bready! The English Mild Beer Bread took me literally 10 mins to make and then an hour in the oven. The beer has yeast in it that helps the bread rise, which is why you don’t need to add any! Science! Pretty neat!

Strawberry Rhubarb Wheat Ale Loaf

Strawberry Rhubarb Wheat Ale Loaf

If you have been reading Chews and Brews from the beginning, you are well aware that I like rhubarb and like using it in baking and cooking. This Strawberry Rhubarb Wheat Ale Loaf is a recipe I have used before in baking, but adding beer adds some different flavours plus yeast which is great for baking loaves and bread! I have used beer before in a loaf, in my Banana Beer Bread. Making fruit loaves like this Strawberry Rhubarb Wheat…

Oatmeal Stout Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Stout Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Stout Oatmeal Cookies… I know… not entirely creative. While I was sitting back enjoying Ghost Train Oatmeal Stout from Hell’s Basement brewery, I immediately thought of oatmeal cookies. And creativity aside, I decided to just make the best damn oatmeal cookies I could using this thick, roasty beer. 

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!
