Beer Bread Recipe Gordon Ramsay

Prepare Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Recipe Ingredients

  • 175g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 3 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • Butter, for greasing
  • ½ tbsp flaked sea salt, e.g., Maldon
  • 250ml beer or lager
  • 1–2 tbsp milk


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F, Gas Mark 6). Butter a 1.5-liter pie dish.

2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and stir in the salt. Add the beer gradually, constantly stirring as you do so. The mixture should be lump-free and smooth. If it is not, add a little more beer or some milk until it is.
