Also one of my favourite recipes and very easy to make
here is my take on a simple beer bread recipe:
- 500 g self aising flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 20-30 ml sugar
- 1 egg
- 340 ml beer
- grated cheese
- chopped spring onion
Combine all dry ingredients, add beaten egg and beer ( at this stage you can add cheese, chopped spring onion) and combine until a dough is formed, place in a cast-iron pot on some coals, place the coals on the lid of the pot. Be sure to not put too many coals on the lid or bottom of pot, we dont want burnt bread. Bake for an estimated 20 min, as this is cooking in an uncontrolled environment ( open fire) be sure to check the bread every now and then to make sure you havent burnt it.
Tap the the bread to check for a hollow sound, or stab a skewer in the centre and when you pull it out the skewer is dry not damp.
Serve with a Potjie stew
