Green Beer Bread for St. Patty's Day!
My one regret is that I didn't put the green beer in the beer bread to make Green Beer Bread, but there is always next year!
Here is the super simple beer bread recipe --
3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1 teaspoon salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1/4 cup sugar
1 (12 oz.) can beer
1/2 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 375F. Mix dry ingredients and beer. Pour into a
greased loaf pan. Pour melted butter over mixture. Bake 1 hour,
remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes.
I used melted margarine and it worked fine. There are so many variations to try by adding onions, cheese, nuts, fruits, you name it . . . but this is the basic recipe.
Now let's see if the Swedish Chef (I mean Leprechan Brother) approves!
