beer bread

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Because I'm up to my elbow fat in an upholstery project and packing for our cruise next week, this week's DIY is pretty simple... but incredibly delicious. I'm a fan of anything that's yummy without a lot of work (I'm cooking impaired), so this is kind of the perfect recipe. My mom and her twin make this all the time, so I can't take credit for this tasty concoction.

Beer Bread

You'll Need:
3 cups of self-rising flour
3 tbsp of sugar
1 12 oz. can of beer (any kind)
1/2 a stick of butter (optional but highly recommended)
Gather your ingredients. Swipe one of your husband's beers from the fridge, and pray that he's too busy nomming on some delicious bread to notice or care. You can use a cheapo-depot Budlight, I just didn't want to go the store...(Plus a pregnant lady buying beer just doesn't look right.)
Stir in the flour and sugar. Slowly add the beer. Be careful to avoid overpouring because you don't want it to be completely carbonation. Make sure everything is thoroughly mixed.
Pam up your bread pan and evenly spread your lumpy dough. Place it in the oven, and bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
After 45 minutes of baking, briefly take out your bread and pour half a stick of melted butter on the top. This is optional, but I highly recommend it. (You're not eating beer bread for the health factor anyway!) Put back in the oven, and bake for another 15 minutes.
Allow your beer bread to cool for ten minutes. Then cut 'er up, slap some butter on it, and enjoy!

YUM! I'm absolutely obsessed with beer bread and could eat an entire loaf by myself in one sitting. Hence why I don't make it often. So, my to-be flabby gut thanks you for reminding me that this deliciousness exists a mere three ingredients + one hour away. (Also, I'll be making it with pumpkin beer to satisfy my Fall obsession. Get in mah bellaaaay!)

Yum! Is it weird I didn't realize beer was carbonated? Maybe I did...I guess I never thought about it. Haha!

I LOVE beer bread. It only lasts about a day in our house.

Beer bread is amazing! Thanks for the recipe, I haven't had it in so long it will be a nice surprise for the hubster this weekend.

Also, when I was 9 months pregnant I was somehow conned into buying two 24 packs of beer. Luckily it was at Wal-Mart, so the looks were minimal.

I'm intrigued. I'm for sure making this when my husband gets home.

I make beer bread too-but use 4 Tbsp of sugar and I brush an egg over the top before putting it into the oven. And mine is a round loaf on a cookie sheet. Looks just as good as this though! And yes, VERY easy!

Ahhh SO GOOD! My friend made some a few years ago and it was the first (and only) time I've had it and holy cow it's delish. I might just have to make my own, since this recipe is ridiculously easy.

xo

p.s. your sugar container is really pretty.

I love making bread. I'll have to try this one for sure.

Looks really good! You should bake 10 of these and pack them in your suitcase and bring them on the cruise. Because, you know, I've heard cruises don't really have that much food to eat.... ;)

I love beer bread, but I'm pretty sure I've only had the Tastefully Simple kind. I'm gonna have to give this a shot!

Hey you! I know I am not as blog present as I used to be, but want you to know that I think of you often, and hope you're doing well. Happy almost-anniversary, my friend.
