  • 3 cups self rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 12oz can of beer

**optional- spices or herbs (garlic, chives, olives, rosemary)


    Preheat the oven to 375. Prepare your loaf pan with baking spray.

    • Pour beer into a large bowl, and set aside.
    • Sift 3 heaping cups of flour into a separate bowl. Measure three exact cups from that sifted flour into another bowl.
    • Add the sugar to the sifted flour and stir to mix. (add herbs/mix-ins here, if using)
    • Pour the flour mixture into the beer and mix JUST UNTIL MOIST & COMBINED. Overmixing will cause your loaf to be tough.
    • Pour dough into prepared loaf pan.
    • Top with melted butter.
    • Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden and crisp on the top.
