More About This Recipe

  • I will be the first to admit I'm an enigma when it comes to recipes. For some, I love nothing better than to use shortcuts or prepackaged items, especially if they taste just as or nearly as good as homemade. But there are some instances where I just can’t bring myself to buy premade ingredients. Quick bread is often one of those instances. I live near the Amana Colonies, a.k.a., the land of delicious German food, cured meats, fruit wines and prepackaged quick bread mixes. One weekend, my family and I headed off to the land of schnitzel and overpriced antiques and it was there I happened upon this wonder that is Buffalo Wing Beer Bread – or the prepackaged mix, that is. It was a tough call, but seeing as I’m not wont to make bread from mixes or in bread machines as much as possible (see above, “enigma”), I decided to take only the idea home with me and develop the recipe myself. And boy oh boy, I’m glad I did. You’ll have to use your imagination a bit with this recipe. It doesn’t taste exactly, 100 percent just like buffalo wings, but the idea certainly is there. It tastes more like a meal of buffalo wings and beer mixed together more than anything, which I know sounds a little gross, but if you think about it long enough it actually sounds amazing. And with a little bit of creamy ranch dip on the side, well, who even needs actual buffalo wings, amirite?! OK, maybe that’s going a bit too far, but the point is—this stuff is good.
