I know, it has been WAY too long since I have been posting. I have been super busy and loving Instagram as my social media platform. With this super surreal time, it is hard to believe that we are dealing with a pandemic. I hope all of you are well and safe. Since the stay at home mandate was announced, I have been home cooking up a storm. One of my favorite things that I have made recently is Beer Bread.
My Mom would make beer bread when we were little and I have taken that childhood tradition in adulthood. It is super simple quick bread. You just put all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir. With the surge of folks buying yeast, this is a perfect bread to make since no yeast is required.
A couple weeks ago, I received a DM from Check Please Bay Area asking if they could feature my photo of beer bread on Instagram. I said with enthusiasm - YES! I am a huge fan of Check Please Bay Area and was honored to be highlighted on the show. Here is a link to the episode if you want to view.
BEST EVER BEER BREAD
- 3 Cup Flour
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 3 Tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar
- 1 (12 oz) Dark Beer (I used Guinness)
- 4 Tablespoons Melted Butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar and combine together. Add the beer and mix well until combined.
Prepare a 9x5x3 loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and pour the batter to the loaf pan. Pour the melted butter over the top.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes. Check the beer bread for doneness by inserting a knife. Once the knife comes out clean, the bread is done. Let cool for about 10 minutes and serve with butter.
If you don't finish it, it makes great toast the next morning. Enjoy!!
