TX B&B White Chocolate-Walnut-Cranberry Beer Bread

White Chocolate-Walnut-Cranberry Bread

Basic bread is a mixture of flour, liquid and a leavening  agent that transforms into crusty, earthy goodness when  baked.  With the addition of beer, this hearty  quick bread develops a yeasty flavor typically found  in  yeast breads and its’ substance from the addition of white chocolate chips, toasted walnuts and chewy cranberries.  We serve it at the B&B toasted plain for breakfast, soaked in a custard and  baked for french toast, and toasted and topped with  natural peanut butter and bananas for a great sandwich.  Any way you choose to eat it, it is darn good!  Easy to prepare as well, so give it a go.  The walnuts give an additional boost of protein.  You can omit the nuts, cranberries and chocolate and substitute cheese and herbs for a savory dinner bread…….
