Ever order anything from Tastefully Simple before? I have and it’s really expensive. The company has some really good products like their bacon bacon dip which goes really good on this beer bread. We like to call the company Tastefully Expensive in our house. They want almost $8.00 for just the beer bread mix. I guess that’s what you get, when you want to pay the bucks for those brand name products.
Making your own is so easy and the main ingredients are basically flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Ben and I aren’t beer drinkers at all but we do love this bread. We’ve had this can of bud light sitting in our fridge for the longest time, and last night I finally got rid of it. Maybe, I’ll try figuring out the recipe for the bacon bacon dip next or try to find a recipe that’s similar to that?
Ingredients: from Gimme Some Oven
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. honey or agave nectar
1 bottle (12 ounces) beer
4 Tbsp. (half stick) butter, melted
(Makes 1 loaf)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9″ x 5″ x 3″ inch loaf pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a wooden spoon, stir the beer and honey into the dry ingredients until just mixed. (I recommend popping your honey in the microwave for a few seconds beforehand to make it easier to stir in!)
Pour half the melted butter into the loaf pan. Then spoon the batter into the pan, and pour the rest of the butter on top of the batter. (Use a pastry brush to spread it around if you’d like.)
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until top is golden brown and a toothpick/knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serve immediately.
