Bread Baking Babes (BBB) April 2012

bread baking essentials We have all the ingredients on hand. But as you can see, the mixing bowl is empty.

Sigh. I wanted to bake this bread! I really did. And I will bake this bread. Just not in time…

Granville Island Beer Bread Diary:

Monday 7 April 14:56:
On our way back from the grocery store, we stopped at the beer store to pick up some Wellington County dark ale. Sure, it’s not Granville Island beer, but I’m not sure that we can get Granville Island beer in Ontario. (Canada has such weird liquor laws!)

I’m going to bake the bread on Friday.

Friday 13 April 09:22: %&^*$%#&&&^++!!!-#$#*^

Well. This is a first. In the past, I always considered Friday the 13th to be a lucky day.


Yup. Life got in the way. And my window of opportunity to bake the bread in time for the BBB deadline is going to whoosh pass.

But we still have beer left and I will bake the bread soon….

In the meantime, here is this month’s BBB recipe. You’ll definitely want to make it. Soon.

Canadian, eh!

While it is true that Canadians are well represented in the Bread Baking Babes, I thought it would be fun to do a Canadian themed bread with the most Canadian of ingredients – Beer! (Extra points for using Canadian beer.)

I hope I’ll make this bread in time for the BBBuddy roundup. I really do. Because the bread sounds fabulous!

Please take a look at the other BBBabes’ Granville Island Beer Bread. It really does look and sound fantastic!
