Basil Beer Bread Recipe at Red Barn Blue Skies

While I do grow most of my basil from seed, I sometimes can’t help myself and MUST buy a beautiful plant when I see it. I recently snagged two gorgeous basil plants while out shopping. I was pleasantly surprised when one of them had the following basil beer bread recipe printed on the plant marker. Because I had all of the ingredients on hand and just reading the recipe made my mouth water, I tried it. And I loved it….So here it is…

***I think I would leave it in the oven for a few minutes longer and just keep a close eye on it.  This first loaf didn’t get quite as brown as I would have liked.

 

The basil smell alone was enough to get the hubby wandering into the kitchen to find out what I was up to.  I  sliced it up while still warm and used some of this overly delicious herbal butter that I had made up the day before.  I followed the recipe I found at my idol Nancy aka The Lemon Verbena Lady‘s blog.  (Be sure to visit her site for great recipes and herbal wisdom.)

 

It was a huge success as we skipped dessert and opted for another piece of bread instead.  Needless to say, this will be a recipe that we’ll use quite a bit in the coming months.  Many thanks to the lovely Nancy for the awesome herb butter recipe 🙂
