Beer Bread Remix!

Sooooo this one time, I made some beer bread.  It was from a mix, it was from a Partylite party, and it was delicious.

Since then, I've done  
three [3] things:

[1] I researched beer bread recipes.

[2] After looking at a bunch of recipes and learning how easy beer bread is to make, I vowed to never buy beer bread mix again because it would be like oh, I don't know...buying a paper airplane kit (contents: 1 piece of paper).

[3] I chose a beer bread recipe and tried it.

I **know** I've posted about it before
(duh, I just put a link to it up there)
so, in order to avoid any unnecessary name-calling,
(i.e., cheater, lazy baker, un-original nincompoop)
I'm doing a little

Same recipe,

Let's try this recipe ONE MORE TIME, but this time, let's do it with {stout} 


 ~•Recipe #3•~

From Farmgirl Fare

Makes 1 loaf

3 c. all-purpose flour
1 T. sugar
1 t. salt
1 T. baking powder

1 1/2 c. (12 oz.) stout beer

    1. HEAT oven to 375°F and grease 1 loaf pan.
    2. COMBINE flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
    3. STIR in beer slowly (dough will be thick and sticky) and spoon into loaf pan.
    4. BAKE for about 45 minutes or until toothpick stuck in center comes out clean
      Mine only took 35 minutes

    5. COOL in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes.
    6. REMOVE FROM PAN and cool 10 more minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

      THIS is how beer bread, round two, came out.

      The cracks are kinda scary huh?  Like a monster?

      Let me help you out with that:
      See what I mean??


      Aside from its resemblance to something kids imagine comes from their closets, this was pretty darn good!

      I mean, look at this crust!
      Mmmmm craggly scraggly goodness...

      Aww... poor widdle bread.  Look at you.  You want some butter, don't you?  You're all warm and happy and you just want some butter.  Butty wutty wutter.  Wubby buddy wubber.  Bubbe--
      OK, I'm done.




    1. I love beer bread! It is my most favorite kind of bread I think! I like the kind you buy from Tastefully Simple. I have never made it from scratch! Who knew! : ) Stopping over from SITS this morning. Nice to meet you!

    2. I have never tasted beer bread, but it looks like I should try it.

    3. I love beer bread, but have always used a mix. I was just thinking the other day that I needed to find a recipe to make it from scratch. Thank you! Can't wait to try it!

    4. OMC girl that looks so good. I've made bread one time and it came out so dry. Your motivating me to try again!!

    5. Oh my gosh girly you crack me up! That bread totally looked like a monster even before I scrolled down. You're too much. This looks so easy and yummy.
