Recipe Notes

Sifting the dry ingredients will give you a lighter bread.  It is important that your “root beer” is room temperature so leave out of the fridge in advance.  I have used pan spray to grease loaf pans, but if you want to make sure that your loaves come out of the pan with ease.  Grease your pan and then cut a piece of parchment paper to fit bottom of loaf pan for extra insurance. If not eaten immediately, the bread should be kept in the refrigerator.  Although it’s best warm out of the oven, a cold slice with a cup of coffee in the morning certainly isn’t bad.
