Serves: 8


  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 can or bottle (12 oz.) beer


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with pan spray, and line the bottom and short sides with a strip of parchment.
  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, and beer until just blended. Transfer batter to prepared pan; smooth the top.
  • Bake 30 minutes, until risen. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F and bake 15 minutes longer. Tent with foil if loaf browns too quickly.
  • Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Continue cooling on a rack.
