Janneke, when I first started to mix the ingredients for your recipe, I was not expecting much to come out of it. The house didn’t smell of bread while it was baking… When I got if out of the oven and the crust was so hard; so I decided to brush a little melted butter and let it cool down. When my husband got home from work we gave it a try. What a wonderful surprise! The bread is delicious, very soft, yet quite firm. This morning I ate two slices with butter for breakfast. I am sure you will forgive me for using a regular Budweiser instead! And I omitted the sunflower seeds, because I didn’t have any. Not sure if you will agree, but this appears to be a very versatile bread. I imagine it won’t hurt to add nuts, or sliced olives or even shredded cheddar? Since I am fond of sweets, I bet increasing the honey and decreasing the beer will afford a delicious result! This is certainly a keeper, which I will make many times. Thanks for sharing!
