Homemade Beer Bread

January 25, 2011

My mother bought me a beer bread mix for Christmas. It looked simple enough so I gave it a shot.

It was easy; just mix the beer bread mix (similar recipe below) and a bottle of Sam Adams Pale Ale, add in some spices (I used Italian seasoning and some garlic), bake for 45 minutes or so, and you have bread!

Here are the basic ingredients:

All mixed together and ready to bake:

And the finished product ready to go with some dipping oil:

This was very easy to make, and it tasted amazing.

As promised, here’s a recipe you can use to make your own beer bread:

Basic Beer Bread Mix:

3 cups organic all-purpose flour

1 Tablespoon granulated sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon baking powder (make sure it’s fresh!)

2 Tablespoons chopped fresh dill (or 2 teaspoons dried)

1 cup finely grated sharp cheddar cheese

12 ounces beer

Optional glaze: 1 egg & 2 teaspoons water, beaten

Heat oven to 375°. Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, dill, and cheddar in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in beer and mix just until combined. Batter will be thick. Spread in a greased 8-inch loaf pan, brush with egg glaze if desired, and bake until golden brown and a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool 10 more minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
