Last week was Chili night at Alpha. Miss V made her chili on Tuesday night and I whipped up two batches of Beer Bread.
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 (I used Octoberfest)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 stick butter softened
Mix flour and sugar together in large bowl.
Add beer, egg and butter to flour mixture and mix well.
Scrape batter into greased loaf pan; bake at 350 for 50 minutes. This dough is very lumpy and thick. After baking you may also brush more melted butter onto the top of the loaf to soften it a bit.
Remove and cool on a wire rack.
