Foodie Fridays: Beer Bread

By eat'n veg'n

If you have any beer left over from St. Patrick's Day celebrations, use a can or bottle to make this tasty and simple bread (I would not advise any of the green stuff, however!).  Beer Bread is so easy to make that I hesitate to even call it a recipe.  Only four ingredients are needed, and minimal effort is required.  If you do not have self-rising flour, do not panic!  Simply add 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt for each cup of all-purpose flour as a substitute.  This bread is wonderful warm and buttered, served with a bowl of soup or on its own.

Beer Bread

3 C. self-rising flour
3 T. sugar
1 can or bottle (12 oz.) beer
1/3 C. melted butter

Combine flour and sugar.  Gradually stir in beer.  Spoon into two greased loaf pans.  Drizzle butter over each loaf.  Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes until golden brown.  Cool on racks.
