Who’s ready for carbs?! Everyone knows that midwesterners enjoy their beer, but they must be crazy to mix it with bread, right? My response: don’t knock it ‘til you try it! I came across this recipe on Facebook of all places, so I didn’t have very high expectations to start. The simplicity and the fact that I actually had all of the ingredients encouraged me to try it out despite my reservations. I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious it turned out! Our need for comfort food is at an all time high right now, so I thought I would share this midwestern favorite.
1 can of beer (I usually use cheap light beer but you can experiment with different kinds)
2 cups self rising flour
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 cup shredded cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat the oven to 375°
Lightly grease a bread pan
Mix the flour and sugar in a medium bowl
Add beer and mix well
Pour mixture into bread pan
Bake for 45 minutes - 1 hour until inserted toothpick comes out clean
That’s it! This bread is perfect for those last minute housewarming parties or summer barbeques where you feel like you should probably bring something thoughtful and homemade but you don’t have much time to do it. I’m also not the best in the kitchen so the fact that mixing and baking is all that is needed for this beer bread makes it accessible for even the worst of chefs (hi). Feel free to spice up this recipe however you would like (I use shredded cheese and garlic powder) and play around with different kinds of beer as well. Now get baking!
This is the beer bread I made, isn't it beautiful?! (Humble brag)
