Last weekend Mom and I made beer bread. I got the recipe from the blog: InDianesKitchen (www.InDianesKitchen.com).
Here’s the recipe!
3 Cups All Purpose Flour 3 Tsp Baking Powder 1 Tsp Salt 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar 12oz Beer (At Room Temperature) 1/4 Cup Butter (Melted, But Cool)
Directions: 1) Pre-Heat Oven to 375 2) Spray Bread Pan With Cooking Oil 3) In A Large Bowl Add The Flour, Baking Powder, Salt And Sugar. Stir To Combine. 4) Pour The Beer Into The Dry Mix And Continue Stirring, But Don’t Over Mix. 5) Place The Mixture Into The Prepared Bread Pan, Making It As Flat As Possible. 6) Drizzle Butter Over The Top Evenly. 7) Bake for 50 Minutes. 8) Run A Knife Around The Bread Pan To Release The Loaf And Let Sit For 5 Minutes. 9) Remove From Pan And Let Sit For 30 Minutes, Then Serve. 10) Store In An Air Tight Bag.
I used Bull Durham Beer Company’s Kolsch Style Ale. This brewery is located in the Durham Bulls Athletic Park in downtown Durham, NC. It is the first of its kind, being owned by a minor league baseball team.
This beer is clean and refreshing with some sweetness. I thought it would go great with the beer bread and I was right! The bread was light, fluffy and sweet.
This was the first time Mom and I have made this and we both enjoyed it! It was really simply to make. Mom and I did add butter to the mix and also poured it on top of the mix. But extra butter just makes it better, according to Mom. It definitely didn’t mess up the bread! I have also read a blog that has added cheese to the recipe. That sounds delicious too!
Merry Christmas Eve! I hope everyone is having a great holiday! Cheers!!
