Beer Bread (Inspired by South Africa)

The taste of freshly made bread is warm and satisfying, however making your own bread requires a lot of patience and effort, which prevents most people from attempting this task.

Beer Bread eliminates the hassel of kneading and reduces your prep/cook time by more than 1 hour. Amazing right?

    1. Hi Wunms,

      You can substitute beer with 355 ml of soda water/fizzy water and 1 sachet of active dry yeast. Alternatively, you can use non alcoholic root beer – I hope this helps.

      Do let me know what you have decided to use as a substitute
