A different kind of bread

I love making bread at home. It smells nice, taste nice, and how much better is freshly baked bread straight out of the oven with a thick smear of butter melting into it?

This was also a far more common occurrence pre-baby.  The problem I have with this is that I don’t particularly care for shop bought bread and as a chef I shouldn’t really have an excuse.  I know the short cuts and the tricks to make something quickly and (mostly) painlessly.  But somehow in-between teething and living a like a single parent since daddy has left the country again it just hasn’t happened.

Beer bread in the other hand  is as easy as 1-2-3!

Basic beer bread

1kg self-raising flour
1 375ml bottle of beer
1 tsp salt

Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined. Spoon into a prepared bread tin and bake at 200 C / 395 F for about 30 minutes and golden brown.
