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.

 

This bread is oh so easy and requires just a few ingredients: beer, flour, butter.

Here is what you need:

3 1/2 cups self-rising flour
(if using regular flour add 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt)
3 tablespoons sugar
12 oz. can beer (any variety)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 stick butter
 

Measure the self-rising flour for your beer bread.

Step 1:  Mix flour and sugar together in large bowl.

Add the beer and egg to your dry ingredients for this simple beer bread.

Step 2: Add beer and egg to flour mixture and mix well.

Pour the bread mixture into a greased loaf pan.

Step 3: Scrape batter into greased loaf pan; bake at 350 for 50 minutes.

Brush the top of your beer bread with melted butter for a delicious finish.

Step 4: Remove bread from oven; melt butter. Brush melted butter onto bread and return to oven to bake 5-10 additional minutes.

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

Step 5: Cool on wire rack; serve with a hearty soup or (or stay tuned for next week’s one pot beef stew!)
