Tastefully Simple Beer Bread

Tastefully Simple Beer Bread

3 c. Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tbsp. Baking Powder
1/2 c. Sugar
1 can Beer or Soda Water
½ c. shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
2 tbsp. melted butter (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 375. Spray bread pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Mix all dry ingredients in bowl. Add beer or soda water and mix until blended. Add cheese if you choose to do so.

Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30 – 45 minutes. Check at 30 with a toothpick to see if it comes out clean. I pour melted butter over the top of the bread when it first somes out for an over the top treat!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake Variation:

I just modified this recipe to make a Cinnamon Coffee Cake. OMG does it smell divine! And hte batter tasted so good I can't wait to get to the cake!



Here goes:

Cinnamon Coffee Cake
3 c. Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tbsp. Baking Powder
1/2 c. Sugar
1 can Coke (Root Beer or Dr. Pepper would work too)
1 tbsp. cinnamon

Struesel Topping:
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp. softened butter

Pre-heat oven to 375. Spray bread pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Mix struesel topping in small bowl and set aside.

Mix all bread dry ingredients in bowl. Add soda and mix until blended.

Pour into prepared pan, top with struesel topping and bake for 30 – 45 minutes. Check at 30 with a toothpick to see if it comes out clean.

**I had to use a little more soda (about another 1/4 can) to get the dough to mix. You might need more too depending on climate and flour.
