I am going to try and not sound too cupcakey here, but I made bread this weekend!!!  Whatever, right? Well, it is SO easy and is So good.  I pulled this bread out of the oven and it was literally gone in about 12 minutes. 

A very dear family friend, Kristy gave me this recipe.  It has 5 ingredients and takes about 4 minutes hands on time. Give it a try and impress your family and friends.  I serve this bread (if there is any left when dinner is served) with soup, salad, or a huge tub of butter. Oh hush, butter is good for you!  I swear there is going to be study that comes out that says that all the butter bashers are going to die early and the butter eaters are going to live to be 104:)


Rosemary Beer Bread

Makes 1 loaf

3 cups Self Rising Flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 (12oz) can/bottle of beer (any kind will work) 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-2 Tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
2 Tablespoons butter, melted for basting

Preheat oven to 350°

In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, salt and rosemary.  Add beer and continue to mix, first using a wooden spoon and then your hands.  The batter will be sticky. Pour into a 9x5" greased loaf pan.

Bake for 50 minutes, basting with butter every now and then.  The top will be crunchy and the inside will be soft and fluffy.

* Add whatever herb you like or have on hand or leave the herbs out all together. 
* Test the doneness with a toothpick.  Insert a toothpick in the center of the loaf and if it comes out clean the bread is done.  The baking time may vary depending on the weather or your oven.
