Its a Saturday afternoon. We decided to keep it quiet for the morning. I wanted to make a quick bread for lunch, and decided to make a quick beer bread. I know, this is a pretty simple thing, but our kids love it (don’t worry, the alcohol burns away). They love the combination of the sweet and salty crust!
This is considered a quick and easy bread to make. The ingredients are:
- 3 tsp baking powder
– 1 tsp salt
– 3 cups of flour (sifted) – I used a whisk to fluff it up
– 1/4 cup sugar
– 1 can of beer (of course)
– 1/4 cup butter (less if you want to, but this makes a yummy crust)
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, add the can of beer, and mix up the batter. Careful not to mix too long, just enough to get everything coated and “elastic” consistency.
Grease up a pie pan, this makes more crust due to the surface area – I love crust!
Melt some butter in the microwave, and pour over the loaf.
Throw this into a pre-heated oven at 375F for about 40 minutes and enjoy. Beer bread is so simple and delicious. Great for having a quick warm bread for guests or snacking on.
