    Well because of Rivet I had to give this a shot. My stove is terrible and I have stayed away from baking because of that. But this did come out good for my first try I think. Do to problems with the internet I was not able to use rivets specific ingredients but I found another that was very similar to his. Any ways it went good, and I definitely need some practice with bread.

    Well hey, GOT1...I think you'e come up with an outstanding recipe using Neuf instead of American or Swiss slices!

    Good deal! Beautiful looking loaves. How'd you like them?

    You know I really liked how heavy or light it was just right for me and the wifee. This is a recipe that will be used often. I am not a beer drinker at all and can taste just a hint of beer if it is used but it didn't come through at all for me. which was a good thing. One of my boys works at the local grocery store and when I was picking up the beer he stopped me and said. Dad what are you doing you don't drink beer? I thought that was pretty funny.

    Bread looks great, only did beer bread a few times, usually to go with a beer based stew and love the stuff.

    Looks real good. I used to make a lot of bread years ago. Even with a bread maker I got lazy.[​IMG]

    Good job!

    Your bread looks yummy as all get out.

    My best tip for making bread, either in a bread maker or the traditional way is to add 1/4 cup of mashed potato flakes to the mix. Add it into the first cup of flour and it won't throw off the dry ingredient volume in your recipe. It will smooth out the bread and give it this awesome texture and taste. Trust me on this one you won't regret it. [​IMG]
