There’s nothing like bread fresh from the oven. I’ve always loved homemade breads. And my mom’s friend Connie just gave me a bread slicer guide, which makes it so easy to make nice slices! I decided to try my hand at “creating” a bread recipe, and I must say it came out pretty darned good!! The herbs give it just a little something extra, and if you haven’t had beer bread yet, well beer makes bread taste awesome!! Also, you don’t need a mixer of any kind for this recipe, just a bowl and a bread loaf pan! Give it a try!
Herbed Beer Bread
2.5 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup whole weat flour (optional – if omitted simply add 1/2 cup more sr flour)
1 12-oz. beer (pale ales or pilsner works best)
2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp Italian Seasonings
Preheat oven to 375.
Spray a loaf pan with nonstick spray. In a bowl, combine all ingredients and stir till well mixed. Pour into pan and bake for 50 minutes, or until golden on top.
