Time Management Bread, (easy beer bread!).

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We have enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday with family, stocked the freezer with delicious Turkey Soup and are in the middle of winter wind and rain here on the peninsula. And while I have all the time in the world to make my standard yeast bread, this one with beer, caught my eye.

To be honest, I love the name, and who doesn't need a little kitchen time management from time to time?

So for the busy days ahead (or anytime really!) Stir this up, pop it in the oven and relax a bit. When you top the loaf with the melted butter, heat up some soup or stew you had stashed away in the freezer for just a day like today.

Plus look at that recipe, who does not like the multiples of 3...recipes like this always seem to work.

With a delicious bread this easy, that my friends, is time management!

Time Management Bread
adapted from: Easy Beans
375-degree oven

3 c self-rising flour - you may find our recipe for whole-grain self-rising flour here.
3 T sugar
1 12oz can or bottle beer, room temp
3 T melted butter
"Time Management Bread", whole grain beer bread, use your own homemade self rising flour.

Stir together flour and sugar, add beer and beat 60 strokes with a wooden spoon (you will want to count, it is more than you will think, while in the process) to develop a bit of gluten in the dough.

Bake 40 minutes, pour butter over the top of the dough, bake 10 minutes more. Let cool, turn out to cool enough to slice.

Note: some folks think that slices of quick bread don't make good sandwiches, and while this bread is not as tender or pliable as yeast bread, it still makes a fine sandwich. Plus the bread toasts up in the toaster or under a broiler flame, perfect for breakfast! Bread never goes to waste around here.
