Shooterking's Beer Bread recipe
One can bake this bread for an informal dinner , braai or even when camping - it's that easy. And your friends will be endlessly impressed with your prowess!
500 g (small packet ) self raising flour
1 tin/bottle 340 ml of your favorite beer
1 egg (optional)
salt to taste.
Thats the base - you can then add whatever you like to make a 'kind" of bread eg. herb , cheese etc.
Suggestions: Sweet : Honey / syrup / cheese
Mix everything together until a dough is formed - preferably with your hands - at least you will feel as if you are making bread!
Place in a baking tray / bread tray and bake at 180 deg pre-heated oven for 20 - 25 min. until golden brown. You can top the bread with cheese as well.
Serve hot or cold to six to eight people with dinner, or as a snack.
When camping , bake over hot coals in a cast iron pot with a lid - and put a few coals on the lid for an even bake. All you need to take with you is the self raising flour - there is always beer around!
Have fun and experiment with new combinations to add like banana , cold meats or whatever.
