Have 3 bananas and some beer?
Let’s make beer banana bread!
Any beer will work, pick your favorite; same for the bananas. Bonus- the recipe only calls for 4 oz of beer, so you can enjoy the rest while you bake! This recipe perfected in our very own BITW HQ kitchen lab, by our very own chef Staci Bronson. So let's get into some yummy baking..
Beer Banana Bread
Pre-heat the oven to 350°F
Mix together dry ingredients
1 ¾ cup flour
¾ cup sugar
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¾ tsp salt
1 tbsp cinnamon
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Mix together wet ingredients
3 mashed bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
½ cup beer of choice - I used Block15 Gloria!
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients
Drink the rest of the beer
Grease (butter or oil) and flour a 9”x5” loaf pan then pour it all in.
Sprinkle the top with brown sugar
Bake for 55 minutes - check it at 50 minutes with a tooth pick. It should come out clean. Bake times will depend on how hot your oven cooks.
Now, try to make it last 24 hours… good luck!
