I am leaving for Berlin to see a dearest friend from College, so I made this quick beer bread for snacking on the road. It’s wholesome and nourishing and has that perfect balance of sweet and savoury, which makes it great with a layer of almond butter as much as with some slices of cheese and cured meats.
1 1/2 cups beer (1 bottle (330 ml/ 12oz))
Preheat the oven to 180C/350 F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, 3 tbsp sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir the beer into the dry ingredients until just mixed. Spoon the batter into a 9×5″ loaf pan (greased or with parchment) and sprinkle the rest of the sugar and some more coarse salt on top. Bake for 55 – 60 minutes or until cooked through (whenever a toothpick comes out clean) and golden on top.
