Directions

Although it’s pretty simple and straight forward, your beer bread mix should come with instructions, below are the instructions from my beer bread mix container:

  1. Pre heat the oven at 180°C.
  2. Grease and dust your loaf pan.
  3. Empty the beer bread mix (450g) into a mixing bowl and add the beer.
  4. Mix until all the ingredient are well combined and the dough is smooth.
  5. Pour the dough into the loaf pan.
  6. Brush the top generously with melted butter, this will make sure you have a crispy crust.
  7. Bake between 45 minutes and 1 hour until golden brown and when a toothpick inserted come out clean.
  8. Remove from the oven and cool for 15 minutes and remove from the pan.
  9. Best served warm with butter or cheese.
