Creamed Honey and Butter Beer Bread with Strawberry Orange Compound Butter

What a delightful flavor combination! The flavors of honey, butter, strawberry, and orange mix together to make my taste buds sing! Fresh bread from the oven is wonderful but when you combine fruit and butter with fresh bread something magical happens.

Creamed Honey and Butter Beer Bread

Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup creamed honey

2 cups pale lager (I used Rolling Rock beer)

1/2 cup unsalted butter melted

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Using a stand mixer, combine first three dry ingredients.

3. Add honey, beer, and butter and mix until incorporated. Dough will be shaggy.

4. Divide dough into 7 mini loaf pans. Mine were paper so I didn’t use a non-stick spray. If using a metal pan, use non-stick spray before adding dough.

5. Bake for 25-30 minutes until lightly golden brown on top.

6. Serve with Strawberry Orange Compound Butter. (recipe below)
