Pumpkin Beer Bread – FAIL

Of course I go to use WP and it’s functioning like crap. I’m having to put in far too much effort to check my comments and go to other people’s blogs, BUT I’m nothing if not stubborn!

This recipe was a hard fail. I’m not 100% sure as to why. It LOOKS perfect but had a soapy taste to it. The only things I can think of are 1:) It was the wrong beer to use with it. I’ve never used a low calorie beer before or 2:) that is FAR too much baking powder. I don’t recall ever seeing a recipe that called for an entire tablespoon of baking powder.

So that makes this a try-at-your-own-peril recipe. D:

Recipe here.

  1. A shame it didn’t turn out as expected, I say next time cut out the middle man and just drink the beer instead! 😉 🙂 Hope you and yours are keeping well my friend. 🙂

  2. Whoa, no, most recipes are 1/2 tsp baking soda, maybe 1/4. I must say, “Slightly Mighty” is a funny name for a beer. Usually, they’re so extreme, like “Dead Man’s Stank” or something.

    1. See, that’s mostly what I’ve seen too. I even went and peeked at other beer bread recipes and no one has been close to that much. Maybe if I’m brave one day I’ll try it again but use 1 teaspoonful instead and see what happens.
      You are right about beer names lmao.

  3. Such a bummer it didn’t turn out how you were hoping because it looks absolutely delicious! 🙂 I’m really excited to try out the cranberry Christmas cake recipe you sent me. It sounds/looks amazingggg! ❤

      1. I’m so excited about it too because I already have all the ingredients to make it! 😀 I love a nice almond flavor so that makes it sound even better in my book! ❤

  4. I blame the low cal beer. I’ve made bread with beer before, and I’ve found the hoppier the beer was the better. There’s always that peril with baking. I remember using butter flavored Crisco that was a year old in my cookies and they had ZERO taste. I was so pissed I’d wasted so many ingredients.

  5. Love this!! NKY is a whole blog dedicated to kitchen and gardening fails- I am so here for this!! 😍😍
