Right off the top, let me say that I am no great beer expert.  I HAVE been drinking more suds lately and enjoying them, but I am nowhere near as well traveled in beer as I am in single-malt whisky. …Continue

Now I have to try it! And I don't even drink beer! I wonder if I can buy just one bottle.... then again if is is a regular thing I can use it up that way.

Pat rye bread would be perfect with the home made sauerkraut and fixings for a home made Ruben.

sk8eycat and Joan. Thank you, thank you, and at the risk of repeating myself, Thank You! 

I made beer bread for the first time this weekend, and it was fantastic. Instead of using all white flour, I substituted rye flour for 1/2 of what the recipe called for. Had that with a bowel of slow simmered ham and beans. Forget the cornbread. I'm going with beer bread from here on.

Potato  cake - for Spud

Probably a WWII recipe – no mention of kitchen machines at all.

You need

600 grams of boiled potatoes, cooled down

2 eggs                      

 200 grams of sugar                                                            

a cake tin and butter or margarine to grease it

Work the potatoes through a fine sieve. Mix in the eggs one by one and after that the sugar. Keep stirring until you get a creamy dough – the longer you stir the better.  Grease the cake tin, fill it and bake the cake at 180°Celsius for an hour.

Beer bread. Never heard of it, so I looked it up. Sounds delicious and looks relatively easy to make. Think I'll make a loaf this weekend, and give it a try. I have a bottle of Sam Adams Boston Lager that needs to be used.

Thank you Joan and sk8eycat for the suggestion.

Our grocery store used to have beer bread in their bakery section.  It's my husbands favorite.  That chain left, and I can't find it in any store or bakery.  I may try making it myself!

I have a recipe somewhere for "beer bread;" the texture and flavor seemed more like biscuits to me...maybe I used the wrong kind of beer.  I'd like to try it again, using a beer with more flavor.  I wonder how it would taste (and look) if I used a dark beer, such as Dos Equis (I used to LOVE that one!)

I love the taste of a good beer, but for the last 30 or 40 years I have not been able to drink anything with alcohol in it (instant migraine!), except a small glass of wine a couple of times a year.  I love Merlot, and anything that Korbel long as it's not sweet.

I love just about anything with bubbles except diet sodas.  Gack! Coca Cola makes a version with Splenda that isn't too bad, but I make it better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or just some heavy cream and a tiny splash of vanilla extract. I do the same with diet A&W.   Fake Floats. Not bad at all.

I've been buying the frozen Multi-Grain loaves from Schwan's for more than a year now...each loaf is about the size of a 6" Subway.  I usually just cut one in half while it's still hot, and slather both halves with butter.  Die-VOOOON!  I sometimes use them for open-face sandwiches with whatever I have in the fridge.

 sk8eycat, your breads sound so good and healthy. 

Have you ever used beer as leavening agent? When I lived in Alaska I had some sourdough bread that an old homesteader gave me. The first time I used it, I set it on the counter between the kitchen and dining room before I went to bed and by the next morning I had sourdough rising all over both floors. It was powerful stuff. 

We also made bread from home brew beer but I can't remember how we did it. That was 1959-1961. I made home brew and it turned out the most terrible color of grey; it was delicious. One morning I had our bible study group over and while they were there my whole batch of home brew blew up in the basement. The chaplain told me that when bible-thumpers come around, your home brew will explode every time. Haven't made any since then.

I just put some whole grain (with sunflower seeds) "brown & serve" loaves in the oven...the aroma is  WONderful.  (I'm drooling)

Fresh-baked bread is one of the few things that actually tastes as good as it smells.  If there really were a heaven, it would smell like a bakery IMNSHO.
