Beer Bread

So, last week, I was browsing around over at Table For 7 and I came across this recipe for Beer Bread.  Oh my goodness!  This would be perfect to make with my hamburger stroganoff...but I didn't have any self rising flour. :(  Never fear, google to the rescue!  I found this recipe that is almost the same, but doesn't call for self rising flour! YAY!

The smell was intoxicating! ;)  I can't believe I didn't just sit on the couch eating the whole loaf with my bare hands! Just after it came out of the oven, our new dog sitter came over for a meet and greet with the Bean (she is GREAT! by the way) and it smelled so good, she asked for the recipe. :)

It was perfect with the stroganoff.  Crusty on the outside, dense on the inside, and that amazing beer flavor.  YUM!

Beer Bread
What's In It:
3 c flour sifted*
1 t salt
2 t cream of tartar
1 t baking soda
1 12oz beer
1/4 c butter, melted

What To Do With It:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Mix together dry ingredients, add beer.  Mix well.  Pour into greased loaf pan.  Pour melted butter over the top.  

Bake for one hour.  Allow to cool on wire rack.** 

*I didn't get out my sifter...that seems like a TON of work.  So instead, I just spooned the flour into the measuring cup.  Worked great!
**When turning the loaf out of the pan, be careful, there is a LOT of butter in there and it almost dripped on my arm...wouldn't want anyone to get burned!
