Tuesday Night Breadventure and Brinner

Back when we were in college, my best friend Stowe went to Beach Week in Myrtle Beach (he would want me to call Beach Week it’s rightful name: Posties). I was down there with other people, but Stowe stayed at a house with a bunch of dudes. One night, the dudes were trying to figure out what to do for dinner and Stowe earnestly and excitedly suggested, “Breakfast for dinner? Ehh?”

One of the other dudes, our friend Justin, turned to him and deadpanned, “THANKS, DAD.” Cause only dads would suggest breakfast for dinner to a bunch of cool dudes. 

This story is the first thing I think of every time I crave breakfast for dinner. Or as we bitchin’ people say: brinner. 

Here’s how it all went down. I saw a link on YumSugar today for a one hour start-to-finish bread recipe. It was for Black Pepper Beer Bread and I really wanted to make it. And brinner seemed to be the perfect vehicle. 

But if i’m being very honest and specific, this is how it REALLY went down: 

See YumSugar tweet.

Click on link.

Avoid work email.

Read recipe.

Decide to make recipe.

Avoid work email.

Read ingredients.

Marvel at the fact that I have all of aforementioned ingredients at home.

Avoid work email. 

Print out recipe.

Focus remainder of day.

Leave the office.

Realize the recipe is still sitting on the printer at the office.

This bread is so quick. And so easy. A lot of recipes say they’ll take an hour, but this one truly takes an hour start to finish. And I had all the ingredients in the house. That never happens. 

Not to mention the fact that this bread is great. The beer and the sugar give it a light sweetness, but the black pepper gives it some edge. A buttered slice pairs perfectly with the salty bacon and a fried egg.

Do yourself a favor. Make this for brinner.

THANKS, DAD.

Black Pepper Beer Bread from YumSugar 

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ tablespoon kosher salt
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 ounces pilsner or lager beer | I used PBR because fuck you, I love PBR.
3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a nine-inch loaf pan.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and pepper.

Pour in the beer and mix gently until combined.

Dump the batter into the loaf pan, smooth out the top, and brush/drizzle on the melted butter.

Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown and crusty in appearance.

I baked it the full 40 minutes, but I think it could’ve gone a minute or two less.
