Generally when I’m making Beer Bread I add different cheeses or herbs. Never the same way and I make it often. Today I thought why not just make a simple beer bread recipe. So here is my beer bread base recipe. (Sorry about my photo, I forgot to snap a picture until I had the leftovers all wrapped up.)
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 TB plus 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 TB sugar
- 1 bottle of Beer, 12 ounces, (Consider the beer’s flavor and how it will affect the taste of your finished bread, I usually use regular Budweiser.)
- 3 TB salted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 and butter a bread loaf pan.
In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the light brown sugar and sugar. Pour the beer in and mix with a wooden spoon until blended. Pour the bread batter into the buttered loaf pan and pour the melted butter over the top. Bake for 50-60 minutes. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean.
