Why does my bread reek of alcohol?

GEC | Aug 8, 2007 09:20 PM

I've never baked actual loaves of bread, but I've tried several times (and using different recipes) to make flatbreads like naan and pitas. Invariably, even when I cook them to the point of crispness, they end up reeking of alcohol. I realize that part of the appeal of yeast breads is the lingering flavor left behind by alcohol after it has evaporated... but I don't think the alcohol in MY bread has evaporated at all. What might I be doing wrong?
