Beer Bread

This is one of the easiest and most delicious breads I have ever made, and as a former baker that’s certainly saying something. It has very few ingredients, and is really quick to make. And it’s fun! Because it’s made with beer! It goes really well with chili (which you’ll learn about tomorrow, and also contains beer), and probably with a lot of other meals as well.

The flavor isn’t super beer-y, but you do taste it. I don’t know if I’m explaining that very well, you’ll just have to make it and try it for yourself. I also have no idea what kind of beer would be best; I just used what was in my fridge. Play with the recipe, it’s fun!  I first thought of trying it when I found this recipe , and after reading the comments decided to try it with some of the suggestions that people made. And if you don’t feel like buying self-rising flour, you could easily make it yourself.
