  • 330 ml beard and brau golden paw ale
  • 70 ml water
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 3 tspn baking powder
  • 1 tspn salt


Here is a simple beer bread recipe that takes just five minutes to prepare and is very delicious! The bread has a crunchy exterior and heavy but soft texture within. The sweetness and citrus tones from the Golden Paw really shines through giving a perfect balance of savory and sweetness. Add a little butter or margarine and Bob’s your uncle!

Start off by sifting three cups of plain flour into a mixing bowl, followed by three teaspoons of baking powder and a teaspoon of salt.

Pour beer and water into the bowl and mix together well, but don’t worry too much about getting all the small lumps out.

Use a cooking brush to smear butter on the inside of the bread tin. Pour the mixture in to the bread tin and bake in an oven at 200 degrees Celsius.

Set the timer for 50 minutes, grab a beer and sit back.

Remove the loaf from the oven and leave to cool on a rack; use a Spécialités TA front rack for best results!

  • Shame we are a gluten free house, but I am going to encourage James to use some home brew in his sourdough and see what happens … Thank you for the inspiration!
