How To Make Beer Bread
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place oven rack in the middle position and prepare the loaf pan with shortening, butter, cooking spray or olive oil. In a large bowl, stir together self-rising flour, beer and sugar.
- Pour bread mix into a loaf pan. Smooth and gently even the batter with a spatula.
- Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, slit the top and pour the butter over the bread.
- Return bread to the oven and bake another 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
- Cool in loaf pan for 5 min before turning out on a wire rack to continue cooling. Of course, that is if you can keep your hungry family from slicing into it before then!

Substitutions and tips
No Self Rising Flour on hand? Only All-Purpose Flour? No worries, you can make your own Self Rising Flour in a snap with plain flour, baking powder, and salt!
The conversion goes like this: for every 1 cup of flour, add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder. So for this recipe, you need 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and 4 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder to turn your plain flour into self-rising flour.
Both light beer and darker beer will work in this versatile beer bread mix. Food and beer go together like Danny and Sandra Dee, so just imagine melting some shredded cheese on top of this tasty loaf!
