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 PUCK!
