Beer bread is always a favorite in the winter and a perfect addition to serve with chili or stew. I wasn’t sure how the 4-ingredient beer bread recipe would turn out, but figured I might as well try it.
When there are only four ingredients, you have to use high quality stuff. So I used a bottle of Magic Hat Jinx Ale. I think it’s important to use a thick, heavy ale with this recipe.
I didn’t have any self-rising flour, but I did have a lot of bread flour. If you want to make your own self-rising flour, someone recommended using 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 1.5 tsp of baking power, 1.5 tsp of salt.
Once I mixed everything together, I didn’t think the dough was super sticky. But I sprayed my bread loaf pan and put it in the oven.
The bread didn’t come out as high as I thought it would (maybe if I used self-rising flour it would have).
But the flavor? It was surprisingly sweet and really tasty. It’d be great as a side with soups or used as sandwich bread. I definitely recommend trying this one!
