How to make beer bread

  1. Make the batter: Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk together. Pour in the beer and mix until just combined. Stir in the grated cheese and corn kernels. Transfer the batter to a greased loaf pan (the one I used was 9x5in / 23x13cm).
  2. Bake: Place the pan in a pre-heated oven and allow to bake for 45-60 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean. If the top of the bread is browning too quickly, loosely cover with foil. Once the bread is baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan completely before serving.

What kind of beer to use for bread

Most beer will work well in beer bread. I prefer a simple lager or pale ale but darker beer will add great flavor too.

  1. You mention 6tbsp of butter in your ingredients section but do not mention what to do with the butter in your instructions. Please advise what I’m supposed to do with the butter.

  2. This bread looks so tasty. I always make beer bread plain but I love the addition of cheese and corn. I will definitely try this recipe!
