Brooklyn Honey Beer Bread

February 21, 2013

I finally moved into my apartment in Brooklyn! To thank everyone who helped me unpack and hang things on the wall, I ordered pizza delivery from a local spot. My brother brought some Brooklyn Brewery beers to celebrate. I decided to use one of the extra bottles of Brooklyn Lager to make this quick bread. I also used some local honey to make this full of NY flavors.

You will need:

  • 3 c flour
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 3 T honey
  • 1 bottle (12 oz) of your favorite lager
  • 6 T butter, melted

Then you will…

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9×5 inch bread pan or a 9-inch cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine the flour with the sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Stir in the honey and beer. Be careful! The beer will react with the baking powder to fizz, so be sure the bowl is not too full to start.
  4. Pour half of the butter into your prepared dish. Spread the dough in the pan. Top with the remaining butter.
  5. Bake until the bread is golden brown on top and a toothpick in the middle comes out clean. A loaf pan should take about 45-60 minutes; the round pan will take about.
  6. Best served warm out of the oven with a little fresh honey and butter.
