I love me some beer bread—it is the best reason to go to a Tastefully Simple party :). However, I don’t like paying over $5,00 for simple ingredients I am sure to have in my pantry.
So, I set out to find a comparable bread that I could make without having to contact, order and wait for a TS representative. I wanted the airy, yet hearty texture–and the subtle sweetness that goes well with EVERYTHING!
After a little research, I quickly realized the only things that come in that little packet for $5.50 is flour, baking powder, sugar and salt…. hmmm… I have that in my pantry on any given day, don’t you?
- 3 cups flour (sifted-this is important!)
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 (12 ounce) can beer (experiment with which beer you like best, in the bread)
- 1/4-1/2 cup melted butter (depending on your personal tastes)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients and beer.
Pour into a greased loaf pan.
Pour melted butter over mixture.
Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes. (watch it though, because all ovens are different–I took my loaf 8 minutes early, and it was PERFECT)
