The easiest recipe you will find today. We are on Spring Break this week - you can't expect much from me.
3 cups self rising flour
12 oz beer (you can taste the difference with different beers - I like a darker beer but Bud Light works just as well)
Mix all three together - just until combined. Don't over mix but don't be afraid to get out some of the big lumps either. Bake at 350 in a greased loaf pan for 45-55 minutes.
I always make this for an appetizer. I cut it into cubes and serve with a garlic dip. Easy peasy.
And if that isn't enough...here are some variations:
Dill & Cheddar: Add 1 cup finely grated Cheddar and2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill.
Garlic & Herb: Add 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, and 2 minced garlic cloves (or 1 teaspoon garlic flakes) to the basic mix. For fresh herbs, use 1 chopped Tablespoon of each.
Dill & Chive: Add 2 Tablespoons fresh dill (or 2 teaspoons dried dill) and 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives to the basic mix.
Italian: Add 1 teaspoon each dried basil and oregano (or 1 Tablespoon each chopped fresh basil and oregano), 2 minced cloves of garlic, and 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan or romano cheese to the basic mix.
Other Additions: Any dried or fresh herbs; 1/2 cup freshly grated asiago (or other hard cheese); 1/2 cup finely chopped onion, 1/2 cup chopped scallions; 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour or 1/2 cup oats in place of 1/2 cup of the all-purpose flour. Or practically anything else you can think of--use your imagination.
