I made the BEST and easiest bread in the world yesterday. It only took about 3 minutes to prep. My husband bought some Magic Hat #9 beer and thought it was a tad on the skunky side. Not wanting to throw it away, I made cheesey beer bread. Here's the recipe:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients first (I sifted them too):
3 c. flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
Then add a cup or so of grated cheddar cheese. Stir in 12 oz. bottle of beer (room temp is best).
Spread into loaf pan which I coated with Pam.
Optional - I brushed an egg wash on the top.
Bake for 45 minutes or until bamboo skewer comes out clean.
I warn you, this is addicting. We each had several pieces with our dinner last night. Luckily it was just a salad. This recipe is so simple a man could do it!
You can omit the cheese and add whatever you'd like - ie. herbs, garlic, diced onion, etc..
Also made a little oil sketch this week on an aceo sized piece of wood. Trying to gear myself up to make a larger painting. it's just so hard with the little one under my feet all the time.
She does love her cats though. How adorable is this...
It's supposed to snow tomorrow. If we get enough and it's wet enough, I plan on making a really cool snow sculpture/man thingy. Stay tuned!
