You can bake a fresh loaf of bread any night of the week with this easy recipe! This classic beer bread is made with a refreshing pilsner and has a topping loaded with hazelnuts. Serve it alongside your favorite seasonal soup or pair it with a light salad.
- ½ cup roughly chopped raw hazelnuts
- ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Pinch of fine sea salt
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 3 cups (339 grams) self-rising flour
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives, plus more for garnish
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 12 ounces Breakside Brewery Pilsner
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 8 ½-by-4 ½ inch loaf pan with butter.
Add the hazelnuts, Parmesan, and salt to a small bowl. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the melted butter and set aside.
Place the flour in a large bowl and stir in the chives and sugar. Stir in the remaining 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Slowly add the beer as you stir. Mix until all ingredients are combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle the hazelnut topping evenly over the top of the loaf. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool for 20 minutes before removing from the pan. Garnish with chives before slicing to serve.
