I have mentioned before that I really want to expand my bread making but the main problem is not having enough time. Well I saw this recipe for Beer Bread from My Baking Addiction and had to give it a try. Literally, you combine the ingredients and bake for 50 – 55 minutes.
Now, I was skeptical. How could the dough rise enough? Well, the recipe comes from a woman who’s blog is named My Baking Addiction. Who I am to question the result. So I jumped in feet first or maybe hands first. In any case, the only liquid used is the beer. I debated on whether I should serve it to my 17 year old and his friend but figured it was OK since it was cooked and the alcohol supposedly burns off.
But I digress. The result was pretty darn good. Not sure it is the first recipe I would choose if I had enough time to make bread but in a pinch this was quite good. The bread was even better when used in a grilled sandwich the next day but that story is for a later post.
- 3 cups self-rising flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 12 oz beer (I used Sam Adams Boston Lager as you can see)
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
- In a loaf pan, spray with vegetable oil, set aside
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and beer, mix well.
- Pour mixture into the loaf pan and bake for 50 – 55 minutes
- 3 minutes before the end of the cooking, melt the butter and brush along the top and finish cooking. Enjoy!
