This Christmas I wanted to give out as many homemade gifts as possible. I like the idea of giving mixes as gifts, because it’s still homemade, but the recipient can bake it at their leisure, because everyone is typically in a food coma throughout the holidays.
Homemade gifts tend to be less expensive than store bought gifts, but mean so much more (to me anyways).
I made this and gave it to one of Zack’s coworkers. She is a really sweet person, so I wanted to give her a little something.
I was really pleased with the way the packaging turned out. I think it was a cute little gift.
Beer Bread Mix
– 2 1/2 c self-rising flour
– 1/2 c all purpose flour
– 1/4 c brown sugar
– 1 t baking powder
– 1/2 t salt
– 1/2 t onion powder
– 3/4 t Italian seasoning
Layer all ingredients into a quart jar.
Attach this tag to the jar: You will need: 1 12-fl oz can beer and 1/4 c butter or margarine, melted. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×5 loaf pan. In a bowl, mix dry ingredients. Pour in beer and mix just until moistened. Transfer to prepared baking pan. Top with melted butter. Bake 45-55 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
