Recipe For Ginger Beer Bread

One day I plan on brewing home made ginger beer. For that I will have to create a natural fermentation using ginger spice and yeast. Until I get around to that I will stick with the two commercial brands I enjoy. Using flat ginger beer I made this ginger beer bread.

Head straight on to the recipe for Ginger Beer Bread ♥

About an hour before Dave and I were leaving home to visit friends, another friend of ours arrived. The weather was amazing and we sat down to enjoy a drink with him. Not wanting to start with the alcohol so early I asked Dave to pour me a ginger beer. I keep sugar free, non alcoholic ones in the fridge for very hot days. Totally misunderstanding me, Dave poured a glass of the alcoholic one I like. I could not taste the difference and it was only the next morning when I saw the open bottle did I realize Dave had given me that to drink. So much for not starting on the booze before dinner! He had only used up half the bottle and by the time I put the ginger beer back into the fridge, the fizz had gone out of it.

Not wanting to waste the contents I decided to make a batch of ginger beer bread. Of course, there was not enough left in the bottle for the recipe so I opened the non alcoholic brand I keep to top up the measuring jug. I made the bread in the morning while waiting for my aunt and cousin to wake up and get ready for the day. We were in quite a rush by the time the bread had risen enough to go into the oven. Thankfully my domestic goddess was at hand to take it out and leave it to cool while we were out exploring Waterkloof. I think if I were to make this again I would add some ground ginger to the mix to emphasize the taste.

    1. I could have handled more of a ginger flavour. It was there, but too subtle for my taste buds 🙂
