I never met a carbohydrate I didn’t love, and oh friends, let me just tell you that the day I discovered I could combine two of my very favorite carbs–beer and bread–in to one delicious (and super easy) recipe was a very happy day indeed.

I’m pretty sure the heavens opened up with a bright shining light from above.

Angels may have sung.

Or maybe that was just in my mind.

In any case, this oh-so-yummy bread recipe is very near perfection in my book–just a couple of ingredients and five minutes to whip together. It is the perfect side to any hearty soup or stew. The self-rising flour makes it just a little faster, but if you don’t keep self-rising flour on hand, just add a little salt and baking powder to the mix and you will be just fine.

Cool your bread on a wire rack when it's finished baking.
