Beer + bread = happy Healthyhag!  This idiot-proof, insanely delish bread can be served with soups, stews or just as a snack.  Warning: don’t expect it to be around very long once you and your freinds/family get a taste of it!  My latest addiciton.



3 cups flour, sifted – key to success! (you can use whole wheat or regular)

3 tsps baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)

1 tsp salt (again, omit if using Self-Rising Flour)

1/4 cup sugar

1 can or bottle of beer (approx. 12 OZ or 341ml)

1/3 cup melted butter (use margerine is you’re a dairy-free kinda kid)



1) Preheat oven to 375F.

2) Mix dry ingredients, then and beer.

3) Pour batter into a greased loaf pan, then pour melted butter over mixture (it’ll swim in it a wee bit)

4) Bake 50-60 min, remove from pan and cool for at least 10 minutes – if you can.

NOTES: Sifting flour for this s a must!  Skipping sifting will turn your bread into a brick or weapon of mass destruction.  If you do not have a sifter, use a spoon to spoon the flour into the 1 cup measure. It works, but isn’t as effective as sifting.  The final result should be a nice dense, thick, hearty and very tasteful bread, NOT A PUCKbread!
