Beer Bread

I love that hoppy, barley-ish taste of beer but I can hardly tolerate more than one beer in one sitting. Especially when it takes me so long to drink it that it turns warm before I finish. So the prospect of having a baked product with that aromatic beer flavor was just what I needed.

3 cups self-rising flour
1 12 fl oz beer
2 tbsp sour cream
8 tbsp sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix all of the ingredients until sticky and uniformly mixed.

3. Place the batter into a well-buttered loaf pan.

4. Bake for 50-60 minutes until the crust is golden brown.  Stick a wooden skewer or toothpick into the middle of the bread and if no gooeyness comes out, then it's done!

5. Slather with butter when hot (optional).

A little bat in celebration of Halloween!

Happy baking!
