Another treat I made for Octoberfest was beer bread using my hubby’s brew. I wanted to make it bite size , so I used mini muffin tins and liners. I just made the Tastefully Simple mix as usual, added my husband’s brew and baked it at the temperature directed on the box, but cut the time down to 10-15 minutes.
I think next time I will brush some butter on the top before baking so they look more golden. The tasted fine regardless. I just want them to have more of that beach tan, instead of white pasty look.
For the spread I found a recipe online. Pretty simple. And no I didn’t use real butter, but it tasted good anyway. I did use real organic native honey, which tastes fabulous. And I ended up adding a little powdered sugar to the mix.

- 1/2 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- In a small mixing bowl, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Add the honey and powdered sugar; beat just until blended. Serve with bread, bagels or toast. Store in the refrigerator.
I even made a little sign to match the one I made for the Guinness Cupcakes. Care for a bite?
