The Ultimate Idiots Bread Recipe.

That's right, I make bread. Its really good too, considering there's no welding involved.

If I can do it so can you and here's the recipe.

Preheat oven to 325
Mix 3 cups self rising flour 3 tablespoons sugar and 12 ounces of room temperature beer.
Dump mix into standard bread pan lightly oiled.
Bake for 1 hour.

A few quick notes: No need to let it rise. The stouter the beer the stouter the bread.
Can be made with ale or meade. Original recipe called for 350 for 45 minutes but that leaves a very heavy crust so I changed it. This a heavy bread and you may think you've successfully made a brick.

Further experimentation is needed and I will post any revelations here.

I should also add that because of this recipe I have began to drink heavily. I have had a grand total of 5 beers this year. 2 in one night, a 3rd would have put me under the table.


  1. Since all I had was 16 OZers I used 4 cups flour an extra tsp sugar- and since I didn't want a bread brick used 2 tsp baking soda.
    Wonderful bread sized soda biscuit!.

  2. That's one of the perks to the recipe, even the failures are yummy.

    I let it rise for 15 minutes on the last batch, made no difference at all.
