Sifted the flour, used cold beer, poured butter, added garlic, ate like crazy. Excellent recipe. Keep up the fantastic work, GN.
Good! Used 1/4 cup butter which was plenty. Bread fit in a 9x5 loaf pan with room to spare. Easy and yummy addition to dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Loved this recipe!!!!!! The first time I made it with Linenkuegels Oktoberfest following the recipe exactly. Yummo! Then I decided to experiment. I tossed a jalepeno and a cup of pepper jack cheese with the sifted self rising flour then added a BudLight Lime - I really don't know how I have made it this far in life without discovering this. I will keep this one in my recipe box.
My go to bread recipe. So easy and quick. I have made it many times with many different beers: Sam Adams Boston Lager, Bells Best Brown Ale, Two Hearted, etc. I would like to try a stout, bock, and porter next. Don't use light beer if you can help it. I also add various goodies: honey, cinnamon, vanilla, molasses, maple syrup, apple sauce/cider, pumpkin pie spice, hot chilies, cheese, caramelized onions, chocolate, coffee, banana, oats, olives, dried cherries, walnuts, pecans, rosemary, thyme, (not all at once :) Very fun to experiment. I also omit or use less sugar for more beer flavor. The butter on top is crucial for crispy crusty goodness. I use convection bake at 350 for an hour or less (check it around 45, depends on how brown you like it) and put parchment paper in the loaf pan for easy removal and clean up.
Wow! I was a bit nervous due to all the raters' comments, but it turned out really well! I am not a baker by any means, so the ease of this recipe is what drew me. I love that there is no yeast, no rising, no kneading. Yes, the bread is dense - but we knew it would be. It was wonderful with the Portuguese Kale & Sausage soup we had tonight. I did SIFT, SIFT, SIFT!!! Future loaves will be tweaked just a bit. I will reduce the sugar so the end result isn't as sweet (just our taste, nothing wrong with it as written) and also the butter. I only used 1/4 cup, but it was still too much. And will also try adding some herbs or cheese, just to change it up sometimes. As another rater said, I used a tray to catch the butter splatters - and am glad I did. Long story short, this bread is going into my Favorites file and I know we'll be making this again and again. Thanks so much for posting!!!
For those who prefer weighing to sifting AP flour, I just scaled 3 sifted cups ~ 330 grams.
Made this today -- used 6 tbsp melted butter on top...could have gotten away with 4 tbsp. It was incredible - I'll be making this again and plan on trying with many different additions such as cheddar, jalapeno, rosemary, sauteed onion...the possibilities are endless! Nice and quick to serve with dinner without planning HOURS ahead.
Made this bread for the 1st time this morning..the aroma on a crisp fall morning is fantastic! It turned out great despite my self-rising flour was not as fresh as I would have preferred. Served it with clam chowder for lunch and it disappeared quickly. Great idea for gift giving! Very forgiving recipe and so yummy!
Excellent recipe! I did add 1/2 cup of grated cheddar, and also I cut up the butter and dotted it over the top. It turned out lovely and my son is currently gobbling it up!
This was terrific. It was so good, I decided to make Christmas gifts with it. I made the mix up and put it into freezer baggies with instructions for adding the beer and butter, and baking temp and time. It was such a hit, I've had several requests for the website with the full recipe. Thanks for such a wonderful yet easy ('cause I'm all for the easy) recipe.
