Taking a short break from the essay writing today I decided to have a go at making beer bread. The result looks rather yummy
It’s so much easier than ordinary bread, only takes a few minutes to mix.
3 cups flour (I used a mix of wholemeal with seeds and self raising)
2 tablespoons sugar
You can also add any flavourings you fancy so mine has some Italian herbs and crushed garlic. This is completely optional though.
Just stir together – you can even mix in the cooking tin for minimal washing up. It’s designed to be baked in a regular loaf tin but I wanted mine round so used a cake tin.
Some recipes say to pour over some melted butter, I was running a bit low on butter so used a tablespoon of garlic infused olive oil instead.
Cook for about an hour at 190/375
I’m planning to turn my loaf into a tear apart cheeseburger bread but that won’t be until tomorrow. It was very hard to resist just tucking in while it was still warm though – I hope it was worth it 🙂
