Made a recipe that called for 12 oz of dark beer. The only can of dark beer I could find was 24 oz. I told the clerk “now to figure out what to do with the other 12 oz since I don’t drink beer” She told me to use it for beer bread. Oh, was it so good and now my mind is going crazy about how to kick it up a notch with flavors. Easy recipe.
3 cups of flour
3 tsp. of baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp of salt
12 oz of beer, any kind/brand
In a bowl sift the dry ingredients or use a whisk to make the dry fluffy.
Pour into bowl beer (it will bubble up quickly) and stir gently until all dry ingredients are incorporiated. Pour into greased loaf pan or muffin tins. Pour over 1/2 cube melted butter. Bake loaf for 1 hour or muffin tins 30 minutes at 400 degrees.
To kick it up a notch…add grated jack cheese and a pinch of cayenne. Grated cheese of your choice and herbs of your choice. Like rosemary, thyme, grated onion/garlic. Or goat cheese and basil, dried tomatoes. Or grated apples and cinnamon. Let your imagination go wild. Just don’t let hubby know you raided his beer stash. LOL
