Basil Beer Bread

  • Portion size 4 servings
  • Credits : sharon


  • 1 cup chopped or torn fresh basil
  • 1 12 oz bottle beer
  • 3/4 cups grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 oz active dry yeast
  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour


Heat oven to 400F. Oil a baking sheet (olive oil). In the bowl of a standing mixer on low or in a large bowl using a spoon combine the flour, yeast, salt, pepper and parmesan. Add the beer and mix just until the dough comes together. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle the basil and knead gently until incorporated. Shape the dough into a round loaf and transfer to the prepared sheet. Bake until the loaf is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes clean, 40-45 minutes. Turn the loaf onto a wire rack. Let cool at least 10 minutes before slicing.
