here is the easiest bread recipe ever! it is quick to throw together, very simple, and delicious! sara, a friend of ours, brought it to a baby shower several months ago, and i've made it many times since then. all you need is:
3 c self-rising flour
1 (12 ounce) bottle of beer (i use shiner)
1/2 c sugar
mix ingredients together and bake at 350 degrees for about 50 - 60 minutes. brush with melted butter during the last few minutes of baking if desired. that's it! it's really that easy!
