Beer Batter For Fish or Veggies

READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by Laudee

This excellent batter recipe comes from our Denver Fire Dept.'s "Favorites" cookbook. Been using it for years, and it's a "fail-safe", yummie recipe.

Good batter recipe. I used slightly more than a cup of beer. I found that the finished product was better when the batter was on the thinner side. I tried the batter on fish and for onion rings. It was a great on onion rings. DS proclaimed "these are SOOOOO GOOD!" when he ate the onion rings.
