Eyeing a bottle of $3 Chardonnay got me wondering if wine bread would be good. I decided I would also make a loaf with an open Cabernet that had been sitting in my fridge for a few days. As it turns out, wine bread is soft, sweet, and delicious. Possibly even better than beer bread!

Step 1: Gather ingredients & tools

Ingredients for one mini loaf:
- 1.5 cups of sifted unbleached bread flour
- 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 tablespoon of table sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 2/3 cup of wine
- about 1 teaspoon of melted butter for the bread wash

- oven preheated to 375 degrees F
- mixing bowl
- measuring cup & spoons
- mixing spoon
- flour sifter, scale, or strainer and lots of patience
- lightly greased mini loaf pan(s)
- optional: whisk (you can use a fork)
- optional: silicone brush for breadwash (you can use a fork)
<p>I have made this a few times and it always turns out well. I made a Christmas tree once with with alternating dough balls of red and green (added a drop of food colouring to the white wine mixture) and that was a hit at Christmas lunch. </p>
