p. 101: Five-Minute Beer Bread

It takes 5 minutes to make…if your beer is already at room temperature, 50 minutes to bake, and about 5 seconds to devour your first warm slice with butter! I’ve had beer bread before from a mix (Pampered Chef or Tastefully Simple…can’t remember) and thought it was okay. This was more bread-like and not as beer-flavory. Served it with beef roast & gravy last night for dinner.

3 c. self-rising flour
3 T. sugar
1 (12-oz) bottle med-dark beer, at room temperature

    Preheat the oven to 350-degrees. Grease a loaf pan.
    In a large bowl, mix together the flour and sugar, then slowly stir in the beer. Mix everything until it is smooth.
    Place in the loaf pan and put the pan in the center of the oven. Bake for about 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and take the bread out of the pan. Allow to cool on a rack or the grates of your stovetop.
    Slice, butter, and serve warm.
