    Ah now, you saw how much of it I put away! The porter and blue cheese combo is a winner. Will be eating lots of this at ours over the festive season, I hope – himself (as chief breadmaker) is under orders!

    I could not agree more on the end result is heavily determined by the ingredients Caroline. We make cheese and cornbread muffins and eat them with beer….. So not really beer bread but close enough. I love the Sunburnt Red too so can see this recipe gettIng a whirl around the kitchen this Christmas.

    Lookin’ good, lady! The bread sounds fab and you already know how much I love the sound of the porter brownies – but you kept the caramel ale sauce quiet until now! Three winner recipes, I’m sure they went down a treat at your demos.

      The caramel ale sauce is a great thing to keep in the fridge, especially if you need a post-childrens’-bedtime snack…

  4. Bread sounds so gorgeous… think I might try it with some Sunburnt Red and Mossfield Cheese!

    Recipe has been copied and clipped away for Christmas 🙂

    This should be a winner for these wintry days.
