You’ll have to excuse the inappropriateness of this post. I fully understand your position.. it’s 100 zillion degrees outside and the last thing you want to be tempted with is something that requires you to turn on your oven.
Baking. In the heat of the summer. Who does that?
And you should too.
Here’s an oldie but goodie (blogged before on Dine & Dish) recipe to get you in the mood…classic Beer Bread. Not the kind you mix up from a box, but just as simple.
Turn on your oven and heat things up even more. It’s so worth it. I promise!
- 3 cups flour, sifted (not packed)
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 12 ounce can or bottle of beer
- 1 stick butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 375°F
- In a medium bowl and using a wire whisk, sift together all dry ingredients.
- Add beer and stir with a wooden spoon until well incorporated.
- Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and pour beer bread batter into pan.
- Pour melted butter over the top of the beer bread batter.
- Bake for 1 hour.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan.
