Man, when I stumbled across this recipe I knew I was making it. Beer….Bread…Bread…Beer..BEER AND BREAD!? Ohhhhh yes !!!!!! I’ve made plenty of homemade bread but this is hands down the easiest bread in the world to make! A bowl, a spoon, and a few simple ingredients and that’s it. It is a hearty, dense bread with a crispy crust and a fluffy center. It’s great with chili, stews, if you dare try using it when making a grilled cheese or heck just eat it right out of the pan like I do! I’m drooling. Okay?
3 cups of all purpose flour or self-rising flour, sifted (I had bread flour so that’s what I used)
3 teaspoons baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1 teaspoon salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1/2 cup sugar
1 (12 ounce) can of beer
2 tbsp of melted butter
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease a loaf pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients give it a stir then add the beer mixing well.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 55-60 minutes (everyone’s oven cooks differently. You can check the thickest part of the bread with a toothpick. If the tooth pick comes out clean after you poke the bread it’s done.)
At the last 3 minutes of baking, remove from oven, brush the top of the loaf with butter and return to oven.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool before slicing. ( I removed my loaf and cooled it on a wire rack.)
