I am not in to baking bread but this recipe is so darn tasty and easy that I simply can't resist ;-) Hint: You can substitute the chives with basil, cilantro, or even minced onions as yummy variations.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, chives, and cheddar in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in beer and mix just until combined. Batter will be thick. Spread in a greased 8-inch loaf pan and bake about 45 minutes. (test after 40 minutes with a toothpick to be on the safe side)

Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool 10 more minutes before serving.

A year ago I was introduced to Tastefully Simple. I love every product that I have purchased from them but they are kind of expensive. The one that I liked the most was their Beer Bread Mix. This sells for $5 a box that makes 1 loaf of bread. I recently found a recipe for beer bread that is so cheap and it is very easy.

Directions

Stir three cups self-rising flour, one third cup sugar and one 12 oz. can of beer into a big sticky lump. Grease a loaf pan with spray shortening or rub solid shortening, oil or butter around. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.

Pour on as much of a stick of melted butter that will run over the top and down the sides without overflowing; bake 15 minutes longer. Let it sit in the pan for at least 10 minutes to soak up all the butter before serving.

The beer batter also makes good dinner rolls. Divide the batter among 18 greased muffin tins and bake at 350, 15 - 20 minutes.

Breads, Warm and cold alike
Beer yeast

Take 4 large potatoes, 1 double handful of hops, put in a sack and boil with the potatoes; dip the potatoes out of the water when done into a gallon crock and mash them fine, then pour the water over gradually; mix well, then fill the crock with cold water and stir in 1/2 cup of salt, 1 cup of sugar, 1 pint of good yeast; then set in a warm place to ferment. Eight hours will suffice, and then tie up and keep in a cool place.

Hope this helps, the recipe is from a 1908 book, Maryjo
