There are plenty of beer batter options for people looking to add a little bit of crunch to their burgers, but this recipe for beer batter from the UK really stands out.
It has an easy-to-make base, but is packed with flavour, and the results are really worth the effort.
Ingredients 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (or gluten-free flour) 2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1/8 tsp baking soda 1/3 cup (80g) unsalted butter, melted 2 tbsp (30g) sour cream 1/5 cup (140g) brown sugar 1 tbsp (15g) cider vinegar 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 tsp apple cider vinegar Method Preheat oven to 180C (Gas Mark 4) Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cider vinegar.
Add the melted butter, sour cream and brown sugar to the bowl.
Using an electric mixer on low speed, beat on medium-high until the dough forms a soft, sticky ball.
Add a splash of cider vinegar to the batter to make it a little sweet.
Add your dry ingredients and mix on medium high until combined.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it a couple of times with a dough hook.
Knead until smooth, about 15-20 minutes.
Place the dough on a lightly oiled baking sheet, leaving a little room to stretch the dough.
Roll out the dough into a 1/6-inch (3mm) thick rectangle.
Wrap it around the baking sheet in two rounds.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool completely before slicing.
