In honor of spending some time last week at my son’s, in his college town, I thought I’d share my Easy 123 Beer Bread recipe. Perfect for a last minute addition to any meal. It makes a moist, kind of crumbly, loaf of bread with a crisp crust. Yum–mee
Okay, here’s the 1-2-3
3 cups of SELF RISING flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 can or bottle of beer
(there was an eclectic choice of beer. I used the Redbridge, “saved” the Corona, I’m thoughtful that way)
Dump the 3 ingredients into a bowl. Doesn’t it look fun, frothy and foamy?? Mix. It makes a batter that is thicker than cake batter and sticky.
Put in greased loaf pan.
Wait! What is that in the upper right corner of the pic? Just barely visible?? Is that possibly another bottle of “1 ingredient”?? Well, it’s always a good idea to sample the ingredients when you cook, don’t you know? I’m thoughtful that way. And if you happen to have this “1 ingredient” with a slice of lime in it, so much the better…
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Give or take. It’s pretty hard to wreck this recipe.
Now, I know, you’re asking where is the after picture?? Well, I was making dinner for a
gaggle passel whole heck of a lot of 20 something males. The bread came out of the oven. I sliced it…and before I could turn around and get my camera, the bread was history. So I had myself another one of those “1 ingredients” with lime.
I’m thinking I should have made 2-4-6 bread — doubled the recipe and made two loaves
