    Len's Note:

    From me own lazy Irish grandmother who died at 100 years plus one day old on Saint Patricks Day back in 1968. I love the way it smells while baking. If you don't like the smell of beer, stay away from it. I also like that you can add it to an oven being used to make something else like a chicken etc. If the other item being baked or roasted requires 325F, just add an extra 10 minu

      We really liked this. I was originally starting out to make Beer Bread Beer Bread, but there were a lot of complaints with that one being too heavy and too sweet; so after comparing other recipes to it, I decided to go with this one, which essentially adjusts those concerns - uses less flour, less sugar.

      I didn't have self-rising flour, so I had to add 1 tsp of salt and 2.5 tsp baking powder. I sifted the flour directly into the measuring cup, so as to avoid it being packed at all; and the bread was light and fluffy, actually closer in texture to a yeast bread than a quick bread.

      When adding the beer to the dry ingredients, the rising action began immediately; so I quickly stirred it just enough to get everything moistened. It was fun to watch, as the bread actually rose while the oven was preheating - would've risen further had I given it a few more minutes, which I will next time.

      Bread was light textured inside, slightly crusty outside, about the same sweetness as any white bread (i.e. not noticeably sweet), smelled/tasted slightly of beer but so slightly that no one knew there was beer in it until I told them.
      It was a bit crumbly when cutting, difficult to get a a perfect slice; but that's the case with most of my breads :^) so that really wasn't an issue for us. I think we liked this bread at least as well as many homemade yeast breads - and given the level of effort involved, no contest.

      This was an easy-to-make and super delicious bread. I made this alongside Better Beer Bread tonight, and we couldn't decide which one we liked better. I made my own self-rising flour by adding 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt per one cup all-purpose flour. I used an 11.2 oz. bottle of Guinness Draught, and the flavor of the beer really shined through-it was SO yummy. This is a great recipe. Thanks so much for posting it!
