I have a severe weakness for bread!
I read somewhere that the average person consumes 53lbs of bread a year – “GREAT SCOTT” – if that’s the case, then my average consumption has to be at least double that! Wow, really Melissa, 106lbs of bread – WOWZERS, maybe I should cut back – HA!
So here’s where you can’t go wrong…it’s Beer Bread, like the title says. That means it is bread with BEER in it, folks! Can it get any better than that? I think NOT! (If you are unsure that this is a victorious combo, go ask your hubs; I think he will agree with me ;)
#2 reason that this is a beautiful combo in bread making. IT’S SO EASY. I mean so easy, your cat could do it! I mean cats can pee in a toilet & flush said toilet, like in the movies – so why couldn’t they bake bread, too, no?
Reason #35…yes, I jumped ahead ;) The bread is yummy sweet! I love me some sweet bread! I’m a big fan of Challah bread – I could eat a loaf in one sitting of that yumminess – holla!
Reason #127…stay with me here. There is NO YEAST involved (unless you count the beer)– hallelujah! See, me & the little yeast packets, yeah, well, we don’t get along.
3 cups of self-rising flour (I use Gold Medal)
1/2 cup of sugar
12oz can of beer (I usually use Natty Light) (experiment with different beers for different flavors!)
2 TBS melted butter
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Spray a bread loaf pan with non-stick baking spray & set aside.
Combine the flour, sugar, & beer in large bowl & mix well; The mixture will be very sticky.
Pour mixture into the sprayed loaf pan & bake for 52 minutes.
After the 52 minutes, remove pan from oven
Using a pastry brush, spread butter on loaf to create a glaze.
Place back in the oven for 3 more minutes to set glaze.
Remove from oven & let sit for 5 minutes.
Slice & enjoy!
