I am not much of a baker. Things just seem to burn or never set or never rise… But beer bread is something I CAN make. And it is great with soups and stews on cold days. Three ingredient recipe included below – trust me, if I can make it so can you!
Beer is a great agricultural product, it can include wheat, barley, hops, herbs, spices, fruit/vegetable juice, and more! According to North Dakota State University, the average American drinks 20 gallons of beer a year. This equates to 21 pounds of barley consumed through beer! For more information on beer and ingredient production visit North Dakota State University, University of Kentucky, and University of Minnesota, to mention a few.
Warning: this is highly addictive!
Dr. Lindsay’s Beer Bread
1 beer – room temperature

3 Tablespoons sugar
Mix all ingredients together. Grease a pan of your choice (I use a large loaf pan). Spread mixture into bottom.
Optional: a couple of small dollops of butter on top of the dough.
