  1. If you don't have self rising flour you can use 3 teaspoons of baking powder.<br/><br/>Simple & delicious recipe.
  2. i did not use self rising flour. the first time i googled how to turn flour into self rising flour and followed those instructions, but the second time i didnt bother. i was not able to whisk this like others said they were able to, it was so thick and there would still be a little bit of flour that could not be stirred in at the end. i dont even sift the ingredients. and it still comes out DELICIOUS!!!! i love to make this because it is easy, quick, and the hubby loves it. we cut it up and spread butter on it afterwards rather than pour melted butter on top, though next time i think i will do as someone else suggested and pour it on before baking.
  3. I love this recipe!! I don't use the butter and it's still great! I take it to work and it's gone in about 15 minutes. Thank you for a wonderful easy recipe!
  4. Very easy to make and very yummy - and I don't even like beer! Also a great fav of the hubby's.
  5. I made this to go along with dinner last night and it was great. I am not a great baker so I was attracted to the recipe by its the simple recipe and easy directions. I did as another suggested pouring the butter on the batter at the start of baking with good results. Will be making this again for sure. Thank you for a straightfoward recipe that tastes great too.
