My friend's birthday was the other day, I wanted to do something special for her. She is so sweet and always shows up to events thrown for me. I knew she liked beer but that is so not my specialty (Give me baking any day). So I thought why not make up a gift basket of things I know my dad would like since he is a beer lover also. I've seen other baskets on Pinterest but not exactly what I was looking for so I ran with it. I of course wanted to add something to do with baking (kind of my signature ... lol). I found on The Good Wife's blog a recipe for Beer Bread that you can put in a mason jar, add the directions and they can bake it.
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic and herb seasoning
12 once beer at room temperature
Directions to make:
~Mix all the ingredients and pour into greased pan.
~Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Serve warm.
I put all the dry ingredients in the mason jar. Typed up a little note with the directions and all she needed was a 12 oz beer (which was included in the basket I was making). Found a nice glass of beer picture in the clip art and printed on card stock, added another card stock behind it to make it have a nice little flair to it :).
For my gift basket I made, You Need:
Basket - found it at Walmart for $5
Beer (your Choice, I picked up Raspberry Shock Top - Found out it was her fav!)
I made some Homemade Caramels
Added in my Beer Mix Gift Jar
(You can switch it up, I just grabbed some fun things that remind me of a good bar)
Have a wonderful day, and hope you have someone you could make this for.
