National Beer Day!

I use to not be a fan of beer. I have definitely acquired the taste! But in case it is not warm enough, where you are, to crack open a cold one; here is another way to use your beer. Beer Bread!

I was gifted this recipe by a sorority sister, almost 40 years ago. The yeast and alcohol in the beer act as your leavener. You don’t even have to let it rise. If you want a fluffier bread you can let it rise 45 minutes to an hour. Be sure to bathe it in lots of butter.

Beer Bread

This is the easiest bread to make. The beer acts as the yeast. If you want it even fluffier, let it rise for 45 minutes, in pan.
