Them Valley Quick Breads

I miss the Valley. It has been some years since I spent the weekend not taking a shower and not caring of the world around me as I listen to melodies of chaos and harmony. Like my experience in dessert, Coachella Valley Brewing Company, the relatively new girl on the block, is a refreshing change on a warm sunny day.

The Valley beer is Kölschella, a Kölsch that uses German Noble hops. Our flavors to compliment the wheat: cranberry and lemon. Let make some Kölschella Cranberry Lemon Beer Bread!

Conclusion

Sour, sweet, and somewhat tart, this bread made for a great carb-induced snack. To create a bread that resembles more of a pasty, use all-purpose flour instead of unbleached bread flour. However, I like the grainy flavors contrasting with the lemon and cranberry.

      Preheat oven to 350° fahrenheit and grease your handy nine inch loaf pan. Sift dry ingredients together. This is something I am starting to realize is an important step to creating loafs that don't look like craters. Sift away.

      Add the cranberries. Slowly pour Kölschella in with the dry ingredients and mix away. Add a dash of lemon juice. Pour dough into the loaf pan, place on the second rack of the oven, and bake for 50 - 60 minutes or until you can stab a toothpick through the center and come out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes.

      In a new bowl, place powdered sugar. While slowly pouring lemon juice into the bowl, mix with a standing mixture. Continue adding lemon and mixing until it creates a glaze. It you would like a creamier glaze, add some whipping cream. Pour glaze on top of bread. Place in mouth and chew.
