Hello, humans! I just couldn’t let another week go by without letting you into my kitchen for everybody’s favorite part of this blog – I mean, aside from my rampant nihilism – #FrozenFoodFridays! Now, as an extra special treat this week, this delicious treat will both satisfy your sweet tooth and your booze craving – and I made it up completely myself! Which will be evident by 1. the actual picture of it I took, and 2. the relatively vague measurements I give for the recipe. So here, without further ado, is EWE’s Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter Beer Bread with Bailey’s Irish Glaize!
- Self-rising flour (3 cups)
- Brown sugar (1/3 cup)
- Vanilla extract (1/2 teaspoon)
- Honey (not too much, just to taste)
- Hershey’s chocolate syrup (again, to taste, but the more the merrier)
- Genesee Brewhouse Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter (12 oz – and obviously any chocolate beer can work)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well until a rich brown dough is formed. If you overestimated on the flour, you can add a little more beer/chocolate syrup/honey to make sure everything gets absorbed. Place dough mixture in 9″ loafpan and make sure it is evenly distributed and smooth out the top. Place in oven and bake for 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Remove from oven and set aside to cool while making the glaize.
- Powdered sugar (1 1/4 cups)
- Bailey’s Irish Creme liquor (2 tablespoons, at least)
- Heavy cream (2 teaspoons)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until smooth. For a slightly thinner (and far more potent) glaize, add a few more splashes of Bailey’s while mixing.
Place the bread on aluminum foil and lightly drizzle the top with honey. Then pour the glaize over the entire top of the bread. Finally, drizzle lightly with some Hershey’s syrup. And I know what you’re thinking – how the fuck does this fit with #FrozenFoodFridays, right? Here’s how – slice and serve with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!
And there you have it, kids! Next time you’re massively depressed and can’t decide between getting shitfaced or pigging out on sweets, remember – EWE says, why the fuck not both?! – EWE
