As we are stuck in quarantine around here I have found it hard to find certain basic foods as people have panicked and stocked up. One of those is bread. Last week I made this delicious Artisan White Bread recipe from Nesting With Grace. This week I decided to change it up and make a loaf of Beer Bread.
I realize that sounds weird, but I promise it’s delicious. The bread has a nice extra flavor to it, yet is still easy to use for any kind of sandwich or toast.
One of the reasons I love this bread is because you don’t have to let it rise overnight. As long as you have the ingredients on hand (or recently visited the grocery store) you can throw it together pretty quick and stick it in the oven.
The only change up to the original recipe that I made was switching from self-rising flour to All Purpose Flour. Due to this small change I had to add Baking Powder & Salt into the recipe to help it rise. Thanks to AllRecipes.com for the exact measurements.
Don’t worry, it had no problems rising AS SOON as I put it in the oven.
We went with Fat Tire beer because it sounded good, but any type of beer will do. Just stick with 12oz of a beer that you love the taste of and you are good to go. Don’t worry, since you are cooking it for over an hour the alcohol content will cook out. The taste, will not cook out!
Once it’s done, let it cool and you can enjoy with any toppings of your choice. Depending on your beer choice, you might want to start with just butter and get more adventurous as you eat your way through the loaf.
