Beer Bread

I realize that a childhood filled with beer bread might seem weird.

Walk home from elementary school, drop your backpack, turn the oven on, crack open a beer and start baking. Isn’t this how all childhood afternoons look?

Either way, I knew the recipe by heart, never snuck a sip and made a ton of loaves of this stuff along with my siblings.

We always ate it hot with a generous bit of butter on top. This recipe is exactly the same, but the butter comes into play earlier making for the most crispy, buttery, glorious crust.

3 cups self-rising flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 (12 oz) can beer
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix flour and sugar with a wooden spoon then add the beer. Pour batter into 3 (6×3 inch) loaf pans or greased muffin pans.  Drizzle butter over tops.

Bake at 350 degrees 50 minutes if making loaves or 15-25 depending on muffin size.
