Basil Beer Bread

Basil Beer Bread

(I talked about this recipe here)

3 1/4 cups flour
1 1/4 ounce-package active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated Parmesan
12 ounces beer, preferably an ale
1 cup chopped or torn fresh basil

Preheat oven to 400° F.
In a large bowl using a spoon, combine the flour, yeast, salt, pepper, and Parmesan.
Add the beer and mix just until the dough comes together.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle with the basil and knead gently just until incorporated.
Shape the dough into a round loaf and transfer to a baking sheet that has been coated with cooking spray and lightly dusted with flour.
Bake until the loaf is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 to 45 minutes.
Turn the loaf onto a wire rack. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing.

makes 10 slices, 4 HUs per slice.
