As much as I love my bread machine and all it’s uses, sometimes it’s not always needed. Beer bread happens to be one of those odd recipes where it’s just too darn easy to make in the oven.
Now usually I buy a mix at a certain craft show every year, but the thought has occurred to me that this is really dumb. All that’s in those boxes are dry ingredients I have at home. I’m already buying the butter and the beer, so why not just make this all the way from scratch?
I poked around for some recipes, but all seem to lack baking soda and use self rising flour. No good. I do know this regular mix includes more than just flower and sugar, so I pieced together my own recipe based on several. And here it is:
3 cups bread flour
3 tsp Baking powder
3/4 tsp Salt
3/4 tsp Baking soda
1/4 cup Sugar
12 fl Beer; any kind
1/4 c Butter; melted
You’ll want to mix the dry ingredients together first, then add the beer in. This batter will be VERY sticky. Grease a bread pan and pour batter in, then top with 1/4 c melted butter. Bake at 350* for 1 hour.
