beer bread

Recipe from: 12 March 2012
Preparation time: 10 min
Cooking time: 1h
 
 

Ingredients

 
  • 360
    flour- plus extra for dusting
  • 3
    tsp
    baking powder
  • 1.5
    tsp
    salt
  • 340
    ml
    can beer
 
 

Method

 
Pre-heat oven to 180°C and line a large loaf tray with baking paper.

Mix together all ingredients in a large mixing bowl except the beer.

Make a ‘well’ in the middle of the flour and pour in half the beer, mix until just combined, then add the rest of the beer.

Sprinkle counter top with a little flour, tip out the dough and knead for 1-2 minutes until light and fluffy, and not too sticky. If you find it too sticky, sprinkle over a little flour and knead again.

Roll into a ‘sausage’ shape, place in the loaf tin, make a few diagonal slices with a knife on the surface of the loaf.

Bake for 50-60 minutes until a sharp knife comes out clean when inserted into the loaf.

Optional extras
1 round of feta
A handful of pitted olives- roughly chopped
2 tsp of chopped fresh rosemary

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
