I Made Beer Bread!

Posted By Amy

Per Ali’s instructions, I made Beer Bread yesterday.  I am happy to report that it was delicious, and indeed, perhaps even at its personal best when toasted with a bit of butter.  I used Blue Moon’s Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale, and I liked how it turned out.  I wonder how changing the beer affects the taste of the bread?  Enjoy pictures below!

I think I win for posting the easiest recipe.  This is a super easy recipe but SO good.  I’m a big dough eater, but FYI, this dough does not taste very good.  However, the finished bread is wonderful…especially sliced very thin and toasted.  I promise my next recipe will be a bit more complex. 😉

Beer Bread

3c self-rising flour
1/2c sugar
1 12oz can/bottle of beer (I think lighter beers work better)
1/2 stick (or less) of melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the flour, sugar, and beer.  Place in a greased loaf pan and bake for about 35 minutes.  Pour the melted butter over the bread and bake for about 10 more minutes.
I really think we should try to include photos as much as possible.  Ams, I will take a photo of this next time I make it.  Tomorrow I have to make some cookies, so I’ll take a picture of them and send you the recipe.
