easy beer bread
No yeast, no kneading, no fermentation time, easy beer bread that can be made right in the oven.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease an 8-inch by 4-inch loaf pan.
Whisk together the self-rising flour and sugar in a medium bowl.
Add beer, melted butter and salt. Mix.
Pour the batter into the prepared bread pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until clean with a toothpick.
Cool before slicing.
Beer can be substituted for seltzer water, but beer adds flavor, so you’ll want to add additional seasonings and additives. Also, don’t skimp on butter. Otherwise, the bread will be flavorless.
Garlic powder, herbs such as dried basil or parsley, and/or seasonings such as parmesan or cheddar cheese can be added for flavor.
Mix until the dough is moist. Do not overmix. The bread will harden.
