Soberdough. Remember that name.
I was in Monteagle for the annual Women of St. Paul’s retreat and I wandered into Mountain Goat Market looking for local food products to bring home. There’s a lot going on in the Tennessee food world right now and I don’t want to miss a single delicious bite of it.
So I happened on Soberdough – a beer bread mix packaged in a cute little sack and made in Nashville. All you do is add a bottle of beer to it, mix it up, put it in a loaf pan and bake it. And it’s friggin’ delicious. Super moist, huge depth of flavor and crave worthy. Hot out of the oven slathered in butter … have a chair you can fall in nearby because it’s so good you might just faint.
I looked up the website to learn more about this ethereal product and wouldn’t you know. There’s a mom behind this, of course. Joy the mom was helping her son, Jordan, learn business. She offered up her beer bread recipes as a product he could build a business around. It’s kind of worked out. Like in a spectacular way. I’m now seeing Soberdough all over Middle Tennessee.
I do not know Joy or Jordan. I was not sent a free sample to try and write about. I have no connection with Soberdough other than my ardent affection for really good bread. Give it a try. Order from their website or check out a location near you where you can buy it, bring it home and bake it right up in 45 minutes. Oh, and I love the fact that they suggest that five minutes before it’s done you pour some melted butter over the top of the loaf. Gilding the lily is one of my favorite pursuits.
