Grease a bread pan with butter or margarine or oil or cooking spray or something.

Put dry ingredients in a bowl.

Whisk it or stir it up well.

Pour the beer into the dry ingredients.

Stir with a spoon or spatula (don't use a whisk). It will be very sticky.

Bake the bread for 50-55 minutes, Then pull it out, rub a little butter on top and return it to the oven for about 3-5 more minutes (it will be golden brown, toasty, and done-looking).

The easiest bread to make in a pinch is beer bread! My mother-in-law made it for me and I was amazed you could have homemade bread in an hour.

I am not sure if this is my MIL's recipe or if I found this somewhere else, but it's a standby. Even though I don't drink beer I love it when friends leave bottles behind at our house after BYOB parties because it means I get to make beer bread!

**If the beer is really strong or dark the bread will be more bitter. You might have to experiment to see if there are certain brands you like the best.
