Beer Bread

My friend Jack convinced me to try making my own bread. He suggested a very simple recipe consisting of flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, butter, and a 12oz beer. You don’t have to mess with yeast, rising, kneading, pounding, or anything like that. It was torture while it was baking, made the house smell, well, you know, good. It was hard to wait for the 15 minute cool down period before I cut off a slice. I have to say it is good stuff. The crust is very thick and tasty, and the inside is heavy and dense. I agree, there is no reason to not make your own bread when it is this cheap, easy, and tasty!

  2. more recipes:
    from Amy:
    3 C. self-rising flour (this is the key)
    1 bottle room-temperature Shiner Bock
    1/2 C. sugar
    1/2 C. butter, melted
    Preheat oven to 305. Mix flour, sugar and beer until combined. Turn into lightly greased large loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Take out of the oven and pour melted butter over the top. Return to oven and bake until cooked through, between 15-30 more minutes. Cool on rack 15 minutes before slicing .
    from Amanda:
    4 cups self rising flour (sifted)
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 bottle beer (I like to use Shiner or Ziegen, but any will work)
    Mix all ingridents together. Pour into two bread pans (do not grease pans). Bake on 375 for 45 minutes.
    I used spray butter on the bread after it had baked about 30 minutes, then let it finish baking, and that was really good too.

    The bread I made today, I followed the original recipe except I used 1 c all-purpose white flour, 1c whole wheat flour, and 1 c oat flour.
