Don't let the ingredients fool you. Our Easy Homemade Bread is so moist and delicious, no one would ever guess you made it with sour cream and beer. It'll be our secret.
You also don't have to tell anyone how easy it is to make this self-rising flour bread recipe. Since it is made without yeast, you don't have to wait around for the dough to rise. You also don't have to worry about the yeast not activating, leading to a flat loaf of bread. This recipe is truly easy and will result in a delicious bread that everyone will love.
You can slice up this beer bread and use it for sandwiches. We think roast beef and grainy mustard would taste amazing on it. You can also enjoy a slice of this bread warm with good butter and a smear of jam or honey. The possibilites are endless! We love how versatile this quick bread recipe is, and we think you will too. Enjoy!
What You'll Need
- 5 cups self-rising flour
- 5 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 cup (12 ounces) sour cream
- 1 (12-ounce) beer
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar. Add sour cream and beer alternately; mix well. Pour batter into prepared baking dish.
- Bake 45 minutes; brush top with butter. Bake 15 to 20 minutes more, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool slightly; serve warm, cool, or sliced and toasted.
- There are some unexpected ingredients here, like the sour cream and beer, but it works beautifully. Try it and you'll see!
- Are self-rising flour and bread flour the same? No, they are different! Self-rising flour is a mix of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. It is convenient to use in baking recipes, because you don't have to measure out all three ingredients separately. Bread flour, on the other hand, is a higher protein flour that is great for making yeasted breads. It helps lots of gluten develop during the kneading process, leading to a better chewy bread texture. Bread flour can be used in yeasted breads or other chewy bread recipes (like pizza crust), but you shouldn't substitute it for other types of recipes.
