I love Tastefully Simple Beer Bread. It's the first beer bread I'd ever tried.
After I started dating Sam, and got married, his mom passed on a recipe to me.
'No way, it can't be as good as TS's beer bread,' I though. But sure enough, I think it is!
3 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 - 12 oz beer
Mix all together and pour into a greased/sprayed loaf pan. Bake 50-60 min at 350 deg. In the last 15 minutes or so, you can pour some melted butter over the top- although be careful doing this, as the sides may already be raised above the edges. You could probably put pats of butter on top of the mix just before tossing it in the oven...I'll have to try that next time.
For Z's preschool fundraiser last spring, I made several dry batches and put them in ziploc bags and then put the bag into the paper bags below. They flew off the table!!
