Easy Beer Bread is Great with Soup
I discovered this recipe the second or third week of shutdown2020. I was anxious and depressed. We had school one day and we were done by early afternoon without warning. BAM! We're sending your kids home! I needed something to keep my mind occupied besides the homeschooling and that news. I began researching recipes and cooking helped easy some of the stress.
I discovered a variation of this one on Facebook. This easy beer bread is great with soup!
3 C. All-purpose Flour
1 T Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 Stick of Butter Melted (I used real butter. You can substitute with margarine)
2 T Sugar Optional depending on your taste. I will probably add more next time.
12 oz of beer any flavor or brand.
Optional ingredients: Shredded cheddar, garlic, rosemary, etc.
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and spray 9x5 bread/loaf pan.
2. Mix your dry ingredients creating a well in the center.
3. Pour the beer in the well of dry ingredients. Mix well but don't over stir.
4. I pour 1/3 of the melted butter in the bottom of the loaf pan.
5. Spoon the bread batter in the pan.
6. Pour the remaining butter over the batter and place in the oven.
7. Bake for 45-50 minutes until golden brown. If you've added cheese to the ingredients add 5 minutes.
Note: This is a crusty bread, best eaten while warm. For something a little different you can add garlic, parsley, etc. to the butter that you pour on top of the bread. There are so many variations of the beer bread recipe that you really can't go wrong. And, so easy to add to any meal.
