Beer Bread

I've seen this recipe on a few other cooking blogs and finally tried it last weekend. 
 It is so good!  

We live near a Miller Beer Factory and Mrs. Baird's Bread Factory- they are right next to each other.  Every time I drive by I love the smell & I can't always tell if it's the yeast from the beer or the bread.  I don't even like beer, but for some reason this smell is so yummy.  This bread is perfect b/c it's a combo of the two.  If Mr. Miller and Mrs. Baird's had a baby- it would be this bread.  

I used the recipe found on this one:  Meals at the Muirs
And it's the easiest bread ever to make.  There are only 4 ingredients and like 4 steps!

Ya Need:
3 Cups Self Rising Flour
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 bottle beer
1 stick butter

**If you don't have self rising flour- you can make it!  That's what I do.  Just add 1 1/4 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt for every cup of flour. 

What Ya Do:
1.  Preheat oven to 350

2. Mix flour, sugar, & beer 

I used Shiner, but I'm sure you could use whatever  kind you'd like.
3.  Put dough into a greased pan & bake for 30 minutes.
4.  Remove from oven and pour the stick of melted butter over the top.  Then put it back into the oven for another 10 min.
You can't get easier than that!

This was a really big hit with my family.  It is just a little bit sweet, but still savory.  It would be great with a huge steak!  We may be doing that for dinner tomorrow night!

I'm always on the lookout for easy bread recipes, so if you have one please pass it on!
