Some people pay 5-7 dollars for one of these packages from those home party food companies. They are easy to make at home and cheap! Tried and true. Make a few batches up, and put in a canning jar and give as a gift with a can of beer and a cute tag attached with baking instructions.
Beer Batter Bread
Makes 1 loaf
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt
1 bottle (12 ounces) beer, at room temperature
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
PreparationPreheat the oven to 375°F. In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Add the beer all at once, mixing as little as possible; the batter should be lumpy.
Pour the batter into a 9-x-5-x-3-inch loaf pan and brush with the melted butter. Bake in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
Turn out onto a rack to cool.
