Delicious, easy, and fully of bread-y goodness! I fell in love with beer bread when some friends made a loaf for our New Year's Eve dinner party. Beer bread is delightfully easy to make and tastes so good! After the party, I began experimenting with a variety of flours and add-ins, and pretty much all of the resultant loaves were delicious. The basic recipe seems almost foolproof: 3 cups of flour, 1 bottle of beer, some leavening ingredient, and salt/sugar/etc. to taste. The first oat flour loaf was a particular favorite of mine, and I began to wonder if the recipe would work with a gluten-free beer, rendering the whole recipe GF. It worked!
You will need:
- 3 cups of oat flour
- 1 bottle of beer (for the GF loaf, I used New Grist)
- 1-2 spoonfuls of baking powder
- Salt and sweetener to taste (in general I add a spoonful or so of each)
- Add-ins (optional): nut butter, cinnamon, raisins, cheese?, etc.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl.
- Add beer, stir until well mixed.
- Pour into greased pan (I used an 8x8 square pan lined with foil for this loaf) and bake for 50-60 minutes.
