Looking for a quick bread without yeast or waiting for a long rise? Do you have a beer in your cupboard?? Boom - add flour and bake...almost..
Here you go
Heat your oven to 350 degrees and butter or oil or grease a loaf pan or even an 8x8 inch pan.
Dusting the pan with cornmeal will help or you can line it with parchment paper.
Mix 3 cups flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon good salt and 2 tablespoons sugar. Stir in the beer (mild if possible but a dark beer will be flavorful too)
Pour your batter into the pan and bake about 35 minutes for the loaf pan, less for the 8x8. To check for doneness use a knife or toothpick or wooden skewer, place in to the bread - if it pulls out clean - its done, if you pull it out and its goey... bake some more.
When done, cool for 5 minutes then use a knife around the edges and take it our of the pan.
You can drizzle it with a couple of tablespoons of melted butter if you want.
Once you make a plain loaf ... you will see how this is a batter that you could easily add sweet or savory items to.
Try 1/2 cup of oats
or a cup of fruit fresh or dried
or dandelions in spring... that recipe is in our Common Roots Cookbookwritten by Cathy & Ernest Hohmeyer.
