Beer Bread

My sis-in-law Cindy introduced me to beer bread many years ago. I believe she made it with an Ale. It was delicious!!! I don't drink any type of beer, but in baking & batters, it's awesome!!!! I get requests for this bread frequently, especially from my daughter. No worries, because the alcohol bakes out.
We all love the firm texture and the crunchy crust.

NOTE:
**I usually use my hubby's favorite MGD, but I've also made it with MGD 64 - knocked off all those calories and it still tasted just as great. Just use your favorite beer/ale.
**No self-rising flour? No problem... To make your own self-rising flour for this recipe, mix 3 cups of flour with 4.5 teaspoons baking powder, and 1.5 teaspoons salt.

If by some odd chance the bread doesn't all disappear the day it's baked, spread on a little butter or margarine & toast in a frying pan. YUMMMM
