I got this recipe from my friend’s mom, and I make this ALL the time. It is fantastic by itself with some butter, or can be used as a great dipping bread for this Black and Red Pepper Shrimp. I’ve been obsessed with this recipe since I first had it, and it is definitely a crowd pleaser – thank you Mrs. Sears!
3 cups Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
3 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Dried Dill Weed
1 Beer (any kind!)
1/2 stick Melted Butter
Preheat your oven to 375°. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and dill together until well combined. Pour in 1 room temperature beer, and mix until completely incorporated. Side note on the beer – I have made this recipe over a dozen times, and use whatever I have in the house. I’ve used crappy light beer, as well as nice IPAs, and it always comes out delicious! Once you have the dough mixed, add to a parchment paper lined loaf pan. Another side note – I have used round cake pans, Pyrex dishes, just about everything to make this and it all works. But, the parchment paper is a LIFESAVER when you use a loaf pan – makes it SO easy to just pop the bread out when it is finished baking!
Once you have the dough in the pan, take a wooden spoon or spatula to spread evenly. Top with the melted butter, and put in the oven for 45-55 minutes, until the top of the bread is golden brown. Once it is finished, remove from the pan (told you the parchment paper is a lifesaver!) and place on a cooling rack.
Slice, butter or dip, and enjoy! Mmmmmm!
