What's so great about beer bread is that it can be a quick last minute decision. Because beer is naturally yeasty, you don't need to do a more traditional yeast starter that sits for hours. Plus, the ingredients are pretty easy to come by in your typical pantry.
Everything just mixes together and cooks in one. Go ahead, give it a try!
3 cups self-rising flour (or 3 cups all-purpose flour plus 1 TBS baking powder)
1 12-oz light beer*
3 TBS honey or agave nectar
1 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a loaf pan with butter or cooking spray.
Mix together the flour (and baking powder) and salt.
** Pop a toothpick into the bread and pull it out. The toothpick should be clean, not at all wet or sticky.
