Easy Basil Beer Bread - New Recipe Testing

We have been given this recipe by a male friend who is in to his food in a big way which he has made and reckons is good.  We have yet to make it but on first glance is another chuck it altogether recipe which does not use yeast but the pale ale is the raising agent.

Makes a 900g loaf

  1. 375g self-raising flour
  2. 30g bunch of basil chopped
  3.  a pinch of salt
  4. 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar
  5. 330ml pale ale


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C 350 degrees F Gas Mark 4 and then grease a 900g capacity loaf tin.

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and then mix to form a dough.  Put the dough into the greased loaf tin and bake for 40 minutes until golden brown or a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean.

Allow to cool a little then slice and serve with salted butter.

Sounds scrummy.

Catch you later
