TGIF! I made you a bread! 🙂
As you may probably know, April is the National Grilled Cheese Month. Sandwiches took over the internets. You can spot them everywhere. Most likely in your kitchen too!
So I combined my love for homebaked bread and the fact that we all celebrate one of the best food holidays for today’s post.
Three Ingredient Beer Bread and a list of 30 great sandwich recipes from food blogs around the web.
Let me tell you right quick about this bread. It’s super easy to make as it requires only 3 ingredients to make: self-rising flour, sugar and beer. And even if you don’t have self-rising flour on hand, you can easily make your own.
How to make self-rising flour at home:
1 c all-purpose flour
1 and 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
It will technically make it a 5 Ingredient Beer Bread but it’s still easy and fast.
The bread is quite pale in the appearance as we are using light beer in this recipe. I would be very interested how using a dark beer would affect the looks, texture and taste!
It is great for grilled cheese sandwiches, open face sandwiches or any kind you want. It does taste like beer so be ready for that. If you don’t like the taste of beer, this recipe is probably not for you even though the taste decreases when grilling stuffed with meat, cheese and veggies.
I used it to make grilled cheese using my trusted panini maker.
