I always have some self-rising flour on board and certainly Stephen always has a good stock of beer, so this recipe is an easy go-to for quick, freshly baked bread. This recipe is a no-brainer and you can easily change the flavor of beer bread by using different beer or adding ingredients:
You can literally add anything you fancy. It is hard to mess up. The bread has a crisp crust and is chewy inside. It makes a delicious side for pasta or BBQ. Beer bread is so, so easy to make with flour, beer, and sugar, but I found that self-rising flour tends to deliver a better result. I sometimes just serve the plain fresh warm bread with a mixture of marmite and butter or honey and butter.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
