Bread Recipes

What’s Cooking in Esther’s Kitchen: Beer Bread.

This might be the easiest bread recipe you’ll ever see! It’s the perfect side for a hearty bowl of chilli, or a nice home made soup. Might I suggest the Black Bean Soup from our previous adventure in the kitchen?

Give it a try, and don’t be afraid to put your own spin on it. Try it with a few of your favourite beers, or add a little splash of maple syrup to the top before it goes in the oven. The basic recipe is a fantastic base to play with and make it your own.


Yields: 1 (9×5) loaf
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 45-50 minutes

The flavor of your Steve and Derek’s Beer Bread will vary based on which style of beer that you use. Use a beer that’s your favourite. The sugar feeds the yeast from the beer and helps the bread rise.

3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 Tablespoon baking powder, sifted
3 Tablespoons granulated cane sugar
1 tsp salt
12 fl oz of your favorite beer, room temperature
3 Tablespoons maple syrup or brown sugar
3 Tablespoons nondairy butter, melted
1 Tablespoon nondairy butter for greasing the bottom and sides of the bread loaf dish

Preheat the oven to 375F. Using your fingers, rub the bottom and sides of the 9×5 bread dish with 1 Tablespoon of nondairy butter; set aside.
Add the sifted flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour in the beer and maple syrup. Blend with an electric hand mixer or with a spoon until just combined. Don’t over mix it.
Transfer the batter in a 9×5 bread baking dish. Pour the melted 3 Tablespoons of nondairy butter over the batter. Place the dish on a rimmed baking tray to catch any bubbly batter that may escape while baking.
Bake the bread uncovered for 45-50 minutes or until all liquid has been cooked off. Use a clean toothpick test at the end to check if the bread is cooked.
Remove the bread from the oven. Cool it in the dish for 15 minutes before inverting the beer bread loaf out of the dish. Cool the bread completely before slicing it.

everything’smeasured out all our favorite thingshere beer bread butter cats pigs turkeysfor anybody’s earrings so all right welllet’s get startedwe’re making beer bread and it’s so soeasy so everything’s all here and readyto go you’ll see everything that youneed is right here we’ve got 3 cups offlour I’m gonna ask you to do this andwait did you wash your hands and I canmake you mix that dough in your hand soI think everybody should see you washyour hands know that we know bread thereare over 2 million transmittablediseases known from now so yeah we’vegot everything we need right here I’vegot 3 cups of flour now we don’t have aproper sister but this little kindthis thing seems to do the trick justfine so we don’t fake a whole lot so wedon’t necessarily have all of the makingaccoutrements that a seasoned Bakermight already have in their kitchenthere we go three cups of flour ifthey’re gonna be done by the time Ifinish washing my hands that’s okay themixing parts important that’s what weneed a teaspoon of salt is going throughthe sifter we’ve also got a tablespoon ahealthy tablespoon of baking powder andwith here also got three tablespoons ofgranulated cane sugar so that it’ll gothrough there all through the sifter sothe oven should be preheated to 375 375and how long does it it’s gonna cook fornow I’ve been doing it for about recipecalls for 45 minutes but I’ve beenletting it go for about 35 minutes inour oven the first time I made this Ithought it was just a little bitoverdone so I brought it back a littlebit I know some ovens cook faster thanothers ours is convection I don’t knowif you don’t have plant-based dickbutter what can you use Margaretprobably I haven’t tried it we’re usingdairy-free butter that’s the what therecipe calls for so we’re using plainbutter but yeah I was you know try itwith margarine I’m sure I would swingand that reminds me that needs to bemelted so that has been mixed up and nowI need you dad this is 12 ounces of beerso the beer has to be at roomtemperature yeah so that can go straightin there into the flour yep all rightwell I mean you’re the bubbles arewhat’s gonna make it rate rise I thinkthis is my understanding I dunnosomebody watching they know better andbe written in the comments furiouslythey write right now but the gentlethere you seem to be with it the morefluffy and kind of better it is soyou’re gonna mix it right with yourhands and then you’re also going tothrow in you can use either brown sugaror you can use maple syrup so we’ve gotmaple syrup a game it’s gonna make it alittle bit more moist with you don’tmore times do that a little bit moreCanadian and delicious so we’re gonnause maple syrup so you can put that inthere as welland you’re gonna hand mix that all uptogether so not the brown sugar thingnot the brown sugar it’s either/or notsimply for demonstration purposes andI’m using my hands use your hands thisis why we wanted everybody to see youuse them nopeyeah so you’re gonna just mix until it’scombined you don’t want to over mix itagain I think it’s because you don’twant the beer to go flat ultimately Ithink you still want some carbonation inthere when it goes into the oven andbeside it here we’ve got a 5 by 9 inchgrease pan so I used about just under atablespoon of the plant butter trymargarine as per Derek’s suggestssuggestion sometimes you can’t findcertain ingredient oh that is one ofthem like definitelybut yeah so just under tablespoon we usethat and again use my hands to reallygive that kind of a pretty thick coatingin here on the pan it does yeah it’slike a roast like it’s a hour down therejust barely until it’s combined mixed[Laughter]but anyway so yeah okay so yeah weprobably would have made sure that was alittle bit more than icing dirt got alittle bit of flour in there but that’sthat’s look at me we’re gonna spreadthis right oh it’s such an easy recipeand it’s kind of fun because kids coulddo that it’s so easy a child could do itproperly[Laughter]this is true so so that’s that that goesready for the pan then here I’ve gotthree tablespoons of melted butter thatI’m going to pour evenly over the topshaker here and then one other thingI’ve been doing that I thought was it’snot in the recipe but I just I’ve madeit quite a few times I’ve been playingwith it another thing that kind of givesa nice little little zing to is if youjust drizzle in just a tiny bit a syrupon the top as well just a little bitthere and it just gives a little bit ofa sweet crust there and then that’s thatI’ve been called many things but a sweetcrust sweet crust isn’t one of the mainso into the oven we go now sorry 35 to45 minutes and that’s it when it comesout you’re gonna flip it over onto acooling rack let it cool and you are offto the races if you don’t have a timerit’s about two beers it’s about twobeers no simple easy delicious it wouldgo so well he this isn’t a sandwichbread of course but it would go reallywell with the
