Beer glazed Potato-Beer-Bread for BBD #60

My first attempt of a beer glazed bread was a failure. The loaf developed quite a swelling during baking. I guess the proofing was too short. Plan B was okay – I made a Russian braid, a loaf I already posted before – just glazed it with egg white. Not really original for the 6th anniversary party of BBD. So I tried again with the beer glazing, and this time successfully. Yeah, third time's a charm!

Happy 6th Birthday Bread Baking Day!

  1. Schöne Idee – Kartoffelbrot hatten wir schon und Bierbrot auch, aber noch nicht vereint :D
    Ich verwende gerne dunkles oder Malzbier, das gibt einen tollen Geschmack.
