Beer bread

Beer bread

Beer bread is a very simple bread based on the idea that both beer and bread have a common creation process: yeast is used to turn sugar into alcohol, which in the case of bread then boils off.

Beer bread can be simply made with flour, beer, and sugar. However, it will be fairly dense and heavy unless an additional leavening agent, e.g. baking soda or yeast and sugar, is added. Self-rising flour may be used because it is a mixture of flour and leavening agent. Beer bread without a leavening agent is very sturdy and tends not to lose moisture if it is overcooked. The only consequence of overcooking tends to be a thicker crust.

Different types of beer bread can be made by using different beers, a stout or dark beer will give a darker bread with a heavier flavor. Using a beer that is spiced, or has a flavor added will make a bread with a similar flavor, but less intense than the beer.
