This is my absolutely favorite thing to bake when I have too much leftover hard Apple Cider in the fridge. It’s incredible fast and simple. And so delicious! It’s a favorite for the whole family, with the final warm bread tasting both faintly fruity and hearty like a beer bread at the same time. If you’re a first time baker, this is a perfect bread to start baking with. It’s hard to mess up! Even times I thought I messed it up it turned out tasting delicious. It’s also a fun recipe to start to experiment with as you get more comfortable. You can try out different cheeses in it, nuts, or dried fruits. Go crazy!
