Okay readers, this is starting to feel like a foodie blog instead of a communication blog. But food and eating is communicating, right? Especially when we talk with our friends and family over a great meal.
Last week I posted a new recipe for black bean and sweet potato chili and promised a recipe for beer bread. Here it is!
3 cups self-rising flour, sifted
12 oz beer
Mix together flour, beer and sugar. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 45 – 60 minutes. Immediately upon removing from oven, pour a stick of melted butter or margarine over the warm bread. Let cool for a few minutes; remove from pan and serve immediately.
Optional. You may pour the butter over the batter before baking for a bread with a softer crust.
Note: If you don’t have self-rising flour, sift together 3 cups regular flour, 3 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt. Be sure to sift the flour to avoid too heavy a bread.
This is great with chili, soup or stew or just with a salad.
