I have mentioned before that my husband and I are not big drinkers. Drinking isn't something we have a moral or spiritual issue with, we just don't do it very often. So a bottle of wine or beer will last for months in our fridge.
My husband bought a sample six pack at Publix a few months back and was trying this beer - Yeti. It didn't quite suit his tastes. He was about to pour it out when I made him stop. I don't like to see anything wasted, but I don't drink beer at all. So I scoured the internet until I found this recipe. Okay, it's got to be more simple than that, right?
Why yes, yes, it is. Just Google Beer Bread or Soda Bread and you will find a host of recipes. I just tooled with this one a bit to make it fit what I had in my cabinet
Let's get started.
What you'll need:
3 cups flour*
1 tbsp. baking powder
3 tablespoons brown sugar or honey
1 - 12 ounce bottle of beer.
* if you use three cups self-rising flour then you won't need the baking powder.
Preheat your oven to 350 and grease a bread pan.
In a bowl sift or whisk your flour and baking powder. Add your honey and stir.
Then add your beer and mix, mix, mix.
It will be clumpy. That is good.
Spread into your pan and pop it in the oven for about 55 minutes until it passes the knife test.
This is really great with a little honey. (My husband put butter and honey on it and it was amazing.)
