Sam The Cooking Guy's Beer Bread

My best friend's 10 year old son has become interested in baking. He's been DVRing episode's of Sam The Cooking Guy and texting his mom for ingredients when he's interested in making something. After he made his first batch of potato chip cookies, he was hooked on baking.

Today I picked him up from school so he could help me make cookies and candy for his class's bake sale. He was talking up Sam The Cooking Guy and how easy the bread looked to make and how much his dad would love it. So I suggested that we google the recipe (click the link for Sam's recipe) and make it if I have the ingredients. Well of course I had all of the ingredients.

  • 3 cups self rising flour*
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 ounces of flavorful room temperature beer
*Just a note about self rising flour... If you have all purpose flour you can make it self rising. For one cup of all purpose flour, add 1.5 tsp baking powder and 0.5 tsp salt.

Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together all of the dry ingredients. Gradually add the beer to the flour mixture and combine well. If you find that the batter is too dry, add a tablespoon of milk. That should help. Pour the batter into a parchment paper lined or greased loaf pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Allow it to cool on a rack.

You guys will enjoy this. It smells really sweet and retains so much of that delicious beer flavor. The outside is crispy and the inside is chewy. Perfection! Enjoy!
