Dori's Beer Bread

   Matt's Aunt Dori said that beer bread is a favorite of guests at her house.  I have had beer bread before, always made with a lager.  Usually made from whatever beer your friends brought over and left.  You know, the one you won't drink but you could make bread out of!  But Dori had a few suggestions, and none of them were that.  She said that dark crafty beers were really good.  I had always wondered about that, but had been afraid to try it.  She also said that Mark's nieces went crazy over a loaf made with hard cider.

   Hard cider?!  In beer bread?!  Now you have my attention.  I have to try that!  So, I put that theory to the test and made a loaf to go with our soup for dinner.  You know what?  It is really good!  Beer bread is a little sweet anyway, so the apple really goes well in the recipe.  We paired the bread with some spicy black bean soup and the sweet was a really nice balance to the heat.
