Nana Recipe Wednesday–Beer Bread!

by Sarah on January 13, 2010

Nana!
You looked like you had a couple of beers before you went to get your passport picture taken!
Isn’t this one a hoot?
We used to make this all the time.  It was one of my childhood favorites.   It only has 4 ingredients.  And you probably have them all right now.
Mix together the flour and the beer.
Add a bit of sugar.
Oh yeah, grease your loaf pan.  I like to use the butter wrapper.
And flour it.  Now it’s ready.
Mix your bread dough.  It stays clumpy, more like drop biscuit dough.
Plop it into the pan.
Smooth the top.
You can use a smaller loaf pan if you want, but this will rise to almost the top.  Bake for 45 minutes in an oven preheated to 350*.
Take out, and slather on a big ol’ pat of butter.
Bake for another 10 minutes.
When it’s done, the top will be golden brown.  Cool on a rack for 10 minutes.
Now, doesn’t that look tasty?
Take it out of the pan while it’s still warm.
Cut yourself a nice big slice.
Spread on some butter, and take a big bite.
It really tastes buttery and biscuit-y.  Very comforting.  And just as good as I remember it!
