Tasty Tuesdays: the 9th edition

Today's recipe du jour is by no means original, nor is it even tweaked to reflect my own variation. I will not attempt to put on heirs or parade around like I discovered this recipe on my own. In fact, this recipe comes to you courtesy of my lovely, too good to be true, almost half sister/cousin/fousin, Elisa.

I first tried this buttery deliciousness over Memorial Day weekend at the lake just a few months ago. I have since passed it on to my sister extraordinairre who does not fail to make pans of this bread almost weekly. It is without a doubt one of the easiest, most user-friendly recipes I have ever made and it has a tendency to disappear within the course of one meal.

Today, I bring you BEER BREAD!


3 C self-rising flour
3 T sugar (more if you like your bread sweeter)
1 bottle of beer

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the ingredients in a bowl and pour into a greased 8 x 8 pan.

Bake for about 30 minutes. Pour 1/2 stick melted butter over the top and return to the oven for another 10 minutes.

This bread is excellent paired with chicken, fish, roast, barbeque...oh, who am I kidding? This bread is divine with anything. While it's absolutely perfect on its own, a good dose of honey doesn't hurt either.

When Elisa made it for us on that fateful night back in May, we devoured it so quickly that she had to bake an additional pan of the delicious goodness. It is just THAT good.

It also works really well when you bake it in muffin tins. Delicious beer rolls! This was one of the first things I learned to make when I was a kid! A family fav to be sure.
