Bodacious. Beer Bread
Why I Love This Recipe
Easy and delicious. Makes a great gift as a loaf or the mix!
Ingredients You'll Need
3cups flour (sifted)
3teaspoons baking powder(omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1teaspoon salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1(12 ounce) can beer
1⁄2cup melted butter (1/4 cup will do just fine)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients and beer.
Pour into a greased loaf pan.
Pour melted butter over mixture.
Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes.
UPDATED NOTES: This recipe makes a very hearty bread with a crunchy, buttery crust. If you prefer a softer crust (like a traditional bread) mix the butter into the batter instead of pouring it over the top.
Sifting flour for bread recipes is a must-do. Most people just scoop the 1 cup measure in the flour canister and level it off. That compacts the flour and will turn your bread into a "hard biscuit" as some have described. That's because they aren't sifting their flour! If you do not have a sifter, use a spoon to spoon the flour into the 1 cup measure. Try it once the "correct" way and you will see an amazing difference in the end product.
The final result should be a thick, hearty and very tasteful bread, NOT A BRICK! ;t).
