BEER BREAD - WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE!

Beer bread.

I love this bread.  It tastes sooooo good and couldn’t be easier to make.  You can have warm, toasty bread in no time.  Plus, you can add your own spices, veges, herbs, and/or cheese to suit your tastes; experiment with different beers and ales to add different flavor; AND it freezes well.  What’s not to love….

BEER BREAD

First:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose self-rising flour
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 – 12 oz. can cold beer
  • Melted butter or margarine

DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together first 4 ingredients until well-blended.
  • Pour into greased or sprayed 9 X 5 loaf pan (leave lumpy on top – do not smooth out).
  • Bake in preheated oven for 30 – 35  minutes until top is golden brown.
  • Drizzle melted butter or margarine over top.
  • Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Slice and serve.  Also great the next day in the toaster!

OPTIONS TO ADD TO BEER BATTER:

  • Fresh or dried herbs such as rosemary, oregano, dill, chives, or basil.  I usually add about 2 tbsp.
  • Chopped garlic, sliced scallion, cheddar cheese, even raisins (soak them before adding).  I usually add about 1/2 cup.
  • Use your imagination and try different combinations!

Let everyone think that you spent so much time making this bread!  They will love it and ask you for the recipe….
