I have tried this recipe numerous time and love it. I am 70 and (knead) need the ease of preparation . Great recipe BVZ

This is a great beer bread. I loved the additions of cinnamon and flax. I only used a tablespoon of melted butter and thought that it was plenty to give it a nice look and crunch. My only issue ...

Great flavor. I used a dark micro brew. Next time I will increase to 1 tsp of cinnamon. I'm a literal person, so I attempted to "whisk" beer into flour... don't try. Use anything but a whisk...
