Lockdown Baking |Beer Bread

We used to have a bread maker. It broke a few years ago and we never got around to replacing it. Now, of course, they are rarer than hens’ teeth and I have been grumbling to myself about never having replaced it.

Then I remembered that lovely Deb from PaperTurtle blog* had posted a simple bread recipe years ago and that I had saved it.

Here’s Deb’s recipe for beer bread, and you’re welcome:

Ingredients: 3 cups of flour; 3 teaspoons of baking powder; 1 teaspoon of salt (I went with a good pinch); 1/4 cup of sugar; one 330 ml can/bottle of beer; 1/4 cup of melted butter. (You can find baking conversions here.)

Method: preheat oven to 180C Fan; combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl and stir with a whisk; add beer and stir with a wooden spoon until incorporated; lightly grease a loaf tin and pour bread batter into it, pour melted butter over the top of the beer bread batter, bake for 50-60 minutes.

Allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing from the pan. I served it with this pasta and salad in lieu of garlic bread. The Boy Child and I ate it buttered for a mid-morning snack. The Brainy One finished it up at lunch time as an accompaniment to a ham and cheese omelette. It was delicious.

  1. I had totally forgotten about this – I am going to bookmark it and it sounds so delicious that I am sure he will not mind sacrificing a bottle of beer to go into it! Sounds like it would be fab with a bowl of homemade soup as well.
