Beer Bread

Here’s a recipe for a quick and easy beer bread. The use of self raising flour means there’s no needing or proving required, and you’ll have a tasty loaf in only 30 mins. Experiment with different beers for a variety of textures and flavours.
175g self- raising flour
75 g wholemeal self-raising flour
½ tbsp sea salt
250ml beer
60g melted butter.
(14-54g of sugar can be added to make the bread slightly sweeter if you so wish).
1. Pre-heat oven to180c/Gas 4. Grease mini loaf tin/loaf tin.
2. Sift the flours into a mixing bowl, add  salt (sugar if using) butter and pour in beer, mix until a lump free batter is produced and pour into the prepared tins, approx 2/3 full. Place on a baking sheet and pop in the oven, bake for 30 minutes, or reduce time by 10 minutes if making mini loaves. Remove, dust with some flour, then bake for a further 5 minutes.
3. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before taking out of tin and placing onto a cooling rack.
4. Enjoy hot or cold, with cheese or a ploughmans, or as in the photo below with a nice home-made damson jam.
