3 cups self-rising flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 room temperature beer
Pour into a greased loaf pan, and bake for one hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
After an hour, you'll get a loaf of crusty bread, perfect for eating with stews, or slathering with butter, and honey on a cold day.
We used New Belgium Pmupkick beer on a lark to see if we'd get pumpkin flavored bread. Sure enough, there's a slight tang of pumpkin flavor, and the bread came out a little bit orange! It was also a little shorter than usual, so now we have an experiment to work on for a few weeks. Was the bread short
- Because we used the large loaf pan?
- Because of the pumpkin beer? We normally use cheap beer like Pabst Blue Ribbon or Lone Star.
- Because we followed the instructions for once, and poured in a room temp beer instead of a cold beer?
Have any other ideas? Let us know how your experiments work out!
NOTE: We can't buy self-rising flour in our neighborhood so we use the following substitution via Martha Stewart:
1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
