3 cups Quick Mix (or store-bought baking mix)*
12 ounces beer (any kind–bread flavor will vary depending on beer used)
*You can make this recipe from scratch without a baking mix two ways.
1) Use 3 cups self-rising flour in place of the baking mix and add 1 tablespoon of sugar, or
2) Use 3 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt in place of the baking mix.
Note: Sweet or not so sweet? You choose. For plain beer bread, I use the baking mix without any added sugar. If you prefer a sweeter plain beer bread, add sugar (up to 1/3 cup) to the 3 cups of baking mix, and you can also increase the sugar in the scratch method.
Blink, and you’ll miss the directions because they’re so fast!
Place 3 cups of baking mix (or your scratch ingredients) in a bowl.
Pour in the beer. (It doesn’t matter if it’s cold or room temperature. It doesn’t matter what kind of beer you use. You can use dark beer. You can even use “lite” beer. You can use whatever kind of beer you like.)
Stir just enough to moisten the mixture then spoon it into a greased loaf pan
Pop it in the oven at 350-degrees for one hour. If you like, in the last 10 minutes of baking, take it out and drizzle a little melted butter on top then stick it back in the oven to finish baking. If you’re making a sweet beer bread, sprinkle a little sugar on top of the butter. If you want to go savory, sprinkle some herbs or cheese on top.
Going to make this tomorrow with all the other Super Bowl goodies. We don't drink beer, but know someone will bring some tomorrow. Just hope I can get the beer without losing my life.LOL
