Beer Bread

Beer BreadThis is the easiest and quickest loaf of bread you'll ever make. The beer gives it a nice yeasty flavor. If you like, add your favorite herbs or seeds such as sesame, millet, etc., or even a bit of shredded cheese.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 cups self-rising flour*
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 (12-ounce) can "flat" beer

Cooking Directions:

  1. Lightly grease or spray a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place the flour and sugar in a mixing bowl, mix together using a fork, add the beer, stirring with the fork until well mixed.
  3. Scrape batter into the prepared loaf pan, cover with plastic wrap and set aside while the oven heats.
  4. Heat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  5. Once the oven is heated, bake bread for 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden and loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

Makes 1 loaf.

*Or you may substitute with 3 cups all purpose flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt.
