Hello, friends! Today on the blog, I’m sharing a recipe with you for homemade beer bread and a delicious garlic dip to serve with it. This bread is super quick to make and perfect to serve guests this holiday season as an appetizer or too give as a gift to friends and family. The garlic dip recipe is also homemade but you could easily package the seasoning mix up into little baggies and give with the homemade beer bread as a nice finishing touch.
If you’ve never made bread before, no worries, no yeast or any fancy schmancy ingredients are involved. Best of all, like most of the recipes I share here on the blog, you probably have most, if not all, the ingredients already on hand and ready to go!
I’m a carb-o-holic and I won’t lie, after photographing the bread for the blog, I ate probably half if it in one sitting with the garlic dip and called it lunch. Yes, it was that good. I’ve never met a bread or dip I didn’t like.
Homemade Beer Bread Ingredients –
3. C. self-rising flour
1/4 C. sugar
4 tbs. butter, melted
#1. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
#2. Combine the flour, sugar and beer in a large mixing bowl. The batter will be very thick. Pour the dough into your greased loaf pan.
#3. Pour the 4 tablespoons of melted butter over the top of the bread.
#4. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Insert a toothpick around 35 minutes – if it comes out clean, it is done.
#5. Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool.
#6. Cut or rip the bread into small chunks and serve with garlic dip (recipe below) or last week’s Warm Spinach & Artichoke Dip recipe.
Garlic Dip Ingredients –
4 tbs. minced garlic
1 tbs. dried, minced onion
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried chives
1/2 tsp dill
#1. Combine the dry ingredients and store in an airtight container.
#2. When ready to use, mix 2 tablespoons of the seasoning mix with 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of mayonnaise. Mix well and let set in the fridge several hours allowing the flavors to meld.
*If gifting a loaf of bread and the seasoning mix: add 2-4 tablespoons of mix into a clear plastic bag and write the needed ingredients to make the dip, on the tag.
