Mountain Beach Bread




By Maggie Still (Social Media Coordinator) 

We went from empty toilet paper aisles to empty baking aisles over the last two months as everyone is spending more time at home. As you scroll through your social media you notice literally everyone is baking banana bread or something from scratch.

Well move over Banana Bread we have an upgrade! BEER BREAD! But it’s even better with the NEW Mountain Beach! Beer bread is just as easy as banana bread, you just combine about four ingredients, throw it in the oven, and voila’ you have something even cooler to brag about on Facebook!

BEER BREAD DEETS
You can absolutely use any Breck Brew you have lying around at home, but the new Mountain Beach gives you amazing new flavor to the bread. Mountain Beach is a bright and tart session sour with pineapple, lime, and guava. When you use this beer for your bread it really brightens it up and gives you a little bit more of a sourdough taste!! (I no joke baked this yesterday and I cannot stop eating it!)


DON’T HAVE THE INGREDIENTS?
Order the Beer Bread Bake Kit from the Farm House! It includes everything you need to make your own homemade beer bread. You will get a bag with all your dry ingredients, the amount of butter you need and a can of Mountain Beach all for $8

LET’S BAKE!
I baked this during our Facebook Live Virtual Happy Hour on Wednesday! It was so fun having it on in the background while I baked, they wrapped-up right as I put the bread in the oven!

WHAT YOU NEED

3 Cups of Flour

1/2 - 1 Tablespoon of Baking Soda (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)

2 Tablespoons of Sugar

1/2 teaspoon of Salt (optional)

1 can of Mountain Beach (any Beer will do)

4 Tablespoons of Butter, melted


DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside
  3. Combine all dry ingredients
  4. Slowly add the beer to create a bread dough
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan
  6. Drizzle with melted butter
  7. Bake for 44-55 minutes
  8. Cool on a wire rack before serving

 

A COUPLE TIPS I LEARNED

  • Use a sifter if you have one for your flour. If not just use your fork to stir the flour and dry ingredients to provide air. This makes for a less hard bread when finished!
  • You don’t have to use salt, but I did just a little bit to combat some of the sour taste from the beer.


     
  • SLOWLY stir in the beer. Add some and then continue stirring your bread.

 

  • You don’t need to “knead” this bread but I did just for a minute to make sure everything was mixed in well.



  • After you pull it out of the oven wait about 5 minutes to put on a wire rack. 

  • If you don’t have a wire rack, just place on a plate to breathe a little bit to breathe
 
 
ENJOY!!
