Is there anything better than the smell of freshly baked bread from our own kitchens, especially beer bread? I sure can’t think of anything. The problem for many of us is the time, skill and patience it takes to make it. Well, what if I told you that I could give you a super easy recipe to make bread. Would you believe me? Well, I do and here it is.
This beer bread recipe has been around for a very long time. There are many versions that are all pretty similar, but this is the one we use with great success.
Easy Beer Bread
- 3 cups self-rising flour
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 12oz bottle of beer
- ½ stick of butter (1/2 cup)
Preheat Oven to 375 degrees. Oil 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Combine flour and sugar until blended. Add beer and stir until the dough is formed. Turn dough out on to a lightly floured work surface and knead dough until it is smooth and elastic. Form into a loaf shape and place in the prepared loaf pan. Brush the top with melted butter. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until cooked through.
Notes: The kind of beer you use will change the flavor a bit. We used Coors. Make sure your self-rising flour is fresh. The older it gets the less the bread will rise. If you don’t have self-rising flour you can make your own. Here’s the the way. For every cup of regular flour, add 1 and 1/4 teaspoons of baking soda and a 1/4 teaspoon salt. Viola you’re now good to go.
I love making this bread and having it as a special treat for guests or just because we feel like it. It is particularly good with my homemade raspberry & blackberry jams, fresh fig jam, honey or butter. It’s good anytime; breakfast, lunch or dinner. Trust me. It can be addictive. Enjoy.
