Cheddar Beer Bread Rolls

Oh well hello!

All bread uses certain agents to rise. Most of the time that agent is yeast (or sourdough). Quick breads will call for baking powder, which can do the same thing but acts far more quickly than yeast or sourdough leavens.

Beer is, naturally, a rising agent. So, when you start baking bread with beer, you need to make sure you’re not adding too many other rising agents. When bread rises too much, you lose all the structure and the bread will fall, or dip, in the oven and become a soggy mess. We were worried for a minute with these, but oh my they were fantastic. I highly recommend them for a big pot of soup, but by all means, make amazing lunch rolls with them too. Cue the ham, the salmon, the crispy lettuce, the tomato, more cheese and of course the butter. Lunch is served.
