I love how easy this recipe is and the crust is so good. I have to be careful or I could eat all of the crust off the bread by myself! This is a recipe that I haven’t made in a while but when I went for a spell without going to the grocery store I had to use up what I found in the kitchen to make up a couple of quick meals. I made up a batch of Boston Baked Beans and wanted some fresh bread to go with it.
I had seen a bottle of beer in the fridge and had no idea where it came from or who it belonged too. After a week or so I just guessed it must’ve been something forgotten by a guest. I dug through some old recipes and found this recipe. It smelled so good when it was baking and it tasted even better.
You could play around with the ingredients to make it different flavors and such. I’d say that different beers would probably give it different flavors too but I have not experimented with that.
- 3 c. self rising flour
- 1/4 white sugar or honey (optional)
- 12 oz. beer
- 1 stick butter or margarine, melted
- 1 c. sharp cheddar, shredded (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350.
Grease a Loaf Pan.
Mix together the flour, sugar or honey, beer, and the cheese, if using, Stir just until blended.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan.
Pour the melted butter over the batter. (You can mix the butter into the dough if you like for a softer crust.)
Bake 45-50 minutes. Cool about 10-15 minutes.
