Winter is about comfort food. It’s the time of year for thick steaming stews, flavourful curries and piping hot potjies, and most of these dishes just wouldn’t be the same without a thick slice of fresh bread for dunking. Seeing as we’re in South Africa, your average run of the mill bread won’t really cut it. That’s why we’re put this beer bread recipe together for you, made the only way us Saffas know how… On the braai!
Easy Braai-time Beer Bread
750g self raising flour
2 warm cans of beer (330ml)
30ml melted butter
1 tsp salt
6 tsp sugar
Mix the self raising flour with the salt and sugar in a large bowl.
Add the warm beer and mix well into a batter.
Coat the inside of a No. 10 flat-bottomed potjie pot with butter.
Sprinkle some flour inside the pot, covering the bottom and sides.
Turn the dough into the pot, drizzle with melted butter and cover with the lid.
Place the pot on the braai grid.
Put 6 grey briquettes under the grid and 10 evenly spaced briquettes on the lid. Bake for an hour.
There you have it, braaimaster! You’re all set to take your winter braai to the next level. Remember, for all your braai-time needs, look out for Twinsaver’s range of paper plates, foam cups and serviettes in-store.
