This is a nice recipe for beer batter anything! This can be made 24 hours ahead and stored, covered, in the refrigerator. You can also thicken a bit by adding more flour if needed.

2 3/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons oil
2 large eggs
3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
A grind or two of black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 cup flat beer
3/4 cup cold water

Open beer and leave it at room temperature for at least 1 day.

Chill until cold. Add water, oil and eggs; mix just enough to break egg yolks.

In separate bowl, mix flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Whisk in dry ingredients, leaving some small lumps. Refrigerate until ready to use. Can be made ahead 24 hours. Remix.

If going to use right away, you may thicken with additional flour.

I pour the beer into the bowl until flat, then chill. Add ingredients to that bowl when preparing.


Use fo fish, veggies – just about anything you want battered!
