Relax, Don’t Worry, Have a Homebrew

One man’s journey to create the perfect beer…

Beer Bread

Posted by ebrius on October 19, 2008

As I posted before, I’ve started to delve into cooking with beer. For my first recipe I decided to tackle beer bread. Its a pretty straight forward recipe, just substitute beer for water.

This is the recipe I used:
4 cups flour
1/4 cups sugar
2 tbsp baking powder
12 oz beer (I used my Imperial Russian Stout)
2 tsp salt
2 eggs

Prep is simple, mix dry ingredients, then slowly whisk in wet ingredients. Mix well, knead if necessary, and pour into a standard 9 by 5 bread pan. Bake for about an hour at 375.

This recipe turned out very good, bread is thick and most. it had a slight coffee and malt flavor to it, the hop flavor was not present. The crust however was very thick and slightly burnt. Next time I might cook it at 350, or half an hour at 375 and then down to 350. Overall I was very happy with it, next time I might try using half or completely whole wheat dough.
