This is an unbelievably awesome tasting beer bread. I found this recipe while browsing for “the best beer bread” recipe. It is by Gerald Norman posted in 2003 on food.com. It is so simple. I used Sam Adams Double Bock. This ale is not for the faint hearted at 9.5% alcohol level, It is an in your face beverage. And tastes so good in this recipe.
- 3 cups All Purpose Flour, sifted
- 3 teaspoons Baking powder
- 1 teaspoon Salt, I used Kosher
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 1 bottle (12 oz) Samuel Adams Double Bock, warm
- 1/4 cup Butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease loaf pan.
Mix dry ingredients together. Add Double Bock. Mix until all no dry ingredients are left in bowl. Pour into loaf pan. Pour melted butter on top of bread batter. Bake for 1 hour and cool on rack for 15 minutes.
The original baker states that the sifting is vital to have a light loaf. The melted butter on top will produce a very crusty hearty loaf. He also says if people like a more traditional loaf, the butter can be mixed into the batter itself. I like the crusty type.
