Garlic & Parsley Beer Bread

The only breads which I have ever baked was the quick-and-easy type and this recipe is no different.  I think if there is one thing that I find irritating tricky to work with, it is yeast and the waiting to rise.

I baked this beer bread the other day because we wanted something to snack on, but you know, not the normal snacks and I had freshly baked warm bread on my mind.

Paging through an old Tupperware recipe book, brought me to the recipe which I am sharing today.  It actually only consists of the first 4 ingredients, but as usual, I had to go add more stuff {good stuff!}.

If you only want the plain Beer Bread just use the 4 ingredients listed first and leave out the Garlic and Parsley, or add something else !

Oh, and best way to eat this - warm, thickly sliced with butter ! 


{1 medium loaf}

500g Self-Raising Flour
1 t Salt
1 t Sugar
1 can (340ml) COLD Beer     {must be ice cold - I used a Lager}
4 - 6 t Garlic, crushed
1/4 cup Parsley, chopped

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray and line a medium loaf pan.
2.) Sift together the Flour, Salt & Sugar - slowly add the Beer and mix by hand until well combined.
3.) Add the Garlic & Parsley - mix {you might need to use your hands to get it really mixed}
4.) Spoon into the prepared loaf pan - bake 50 - 60 minutes until nicely browned and fully cooked.

Cool on a cooling rack or serve warm !   {I can never leave warm bread without having at least one or two slices with only butter on - no willpower against warm bread, whatsoever!!}
