{Recipe} How to Make Beer Bread – aka Eat your Alcohol

November 13, 2012 in Cooking and Recipes

Ummm YUM.

I’m about to share one of my favorite, easiest, tastiest recipes with you. I can’t lay claim on all this deliciousness though… I was bestowed this recipe by a horse-loving mentor named Marnie! She was kind enough to let me ride/compete her horses one summer in college… and one evening she served this recipe to me along with vegetable soup.

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.

okay, back then it was probably more like SHUT THE BARN DOOR… or the stall door… but stay with me here…

Get excited ladies and gents….

I’m ’bout to lurn u sumtin…

That’s right… today I’m showing you…

How to Make Beer Bread

Gather your shtuff:

  • 1 STICK BUTTER
  • 3 CUPS SELF-RISING FLOUR
  • 3 TABLESPOONS SUGAR
  • 1 CAN ROOM-TEMP BEER

Then follow these very difficult instructions that will test your culinary prowess (note the sarcasm):

  1. Spray loaf pan with nonstick spray
  2. Melt the stick of butter and pour HALF into loaf pan. Swish around. Yes, swish is my highly-technical term.
  3. Combine all other ingredients in bowl and mix. Note… I’d pour the beer in slowly. Less foam is a good thing.
  4. Pour batter into pan.
  5. Pour last half of butter over batter.
  6. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Yup…. It’s that easy!  Seriously.  Most days I flail about in the kitchen… but this.  THIS I can make.

The best part is the way your house will smell – freshly baked bread with a hint of beer.  …and in my book. That’s just fine by me.

Give it a go!  This recipe is just in time for chili season and good ol’ fashioned vegetable soup. I think I just felt my heart smile.

Enjoy! Would love to hear from you if you give it a shot. Leave a comment here or drop me a line on Facebook!
