Easy 1 2 3 Bread

by Kay~Kacey on 2/11/2008

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
123 bread ingredients

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)

mix in bowl

Dump the 3 ingredients into a bowl. Doesn’t it look fun, frothy and foamy?? :mrgreen: 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 🙄

That looks so easy I think even I could do it.

Yummy. What a great and easy recipe. Just what I need. Going to need bigger sweatpants.

What a fun recipe!!! Are you sure it wasn’t the sampling that prevented you from getting an after picture? 😈

Tastefully Simple has a great beer bread recipe, too – but yours is much cheaper, I think! (and probably loads more fun!) :rofl:

That’s it for making the bread?? That looks almost too easy. 😯 😀

That sounds really yummy! But there’s no way I could get my teetotaling parents to touch it with a ten foot pole. *g*

I’m with Suzanne – where’s the picture of the finished loaf??

That look good and soooo easy!

Fun post. I like food posts!

And food.

And these little smilie things. I really like them.

Thanks for sharing this, Kacey! I enjoyed my Triscuits and cheese during the Super Bowl, and I’ll enjoy making (and eating!) this bread, too.

Go easy on those “ingredients!”

Kacey February 11, 2008 at 8:36 pm

Well, the “1 ingredient” was as good as the actual bread. And it is so danged easy to make. Doesn’t make good sandwich bread because it’s too crumbly, but it’s great as a side bread.

Kate, so glad I can amuse with my smilies. I like them too. :beer:
