• 2-Ingredient No-Knead Bread

    financial help for a college students-beer-bread.jpg Want a simple fresh bread, but hate all the work of kneading, mixing, measuring, etc? Here is an absolutely simple, no fail, 2 ingredient no-kneading bread recipe that will have you enjoying fresh bread in less than an hour (and most of that is simply baking time!)

    2-Ingredient No-Knead Bread



    Heat oven to 375. Lightly grease a loaf pan. Place the self-rising flour in a medium bowl. Add beer and stir just until flour is moistened completely. Scrape into prepared pan.

    Bake 50 to 55 minutes until top is lightly browned, the sides pull away from the pan and pick inserted near center comes out clean.

    Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes, then turn out on rack to cool.

    Cut in 1/2-inch slices to serve. Makes great toast.

    Another good thing about this bread is that you can add other ingredients to it easily to change the flavor a bit -- for breakfast: raisins, diced apples, orange or lemon zest, bananas, diced pears, shredded cheese, etc.; or for lunches and dinners: chopped green onions, poultry seasoning, or just about anything you have a taste for! I guess you could say that it's adaptable!

    This recipe makes about 18 slices and around 70 calories depending on your additions.

    If you'd like to make a gift out of this, place the flour in bag, seal and label with directions and place an unopened bottle of beer beside it in a new loaf pan or in a gift basket. Decorate with a bow!

      Excellent recipe and a great gift idea. Using part white whole wheat flour will increase the nutritional profile, while still resulting in a nice light load. Since this doesn't use yeast, it won't keep like a yeast bread wull. Of course, with a bread this tasty, that won't be a problem. A great recipe to take to a vacation rental. If you really want a loaf shape, take your

      Could a person use some sort of pop instead of beer?

      No, beer contains yeast, which is an essential ingredient for the breast to come out

      I believe beer is required due to the yeast it contains. Soda wouldn't give this bread the rise it requires -- you might end up with a brick instead.

      You can use ginger ale in place of beer if you wish. The recipe I've always used also calls for 3 Tbsp too.

      Hi, I know alcohol burns off when cooking with but would the bread get to a high enough temp to do this so my children can eat it.?

      Made these several times. The alcohol (beer) burns off with the baking. It is delicious. Fun to try new add-ons like cheese, sesame seeds, etc.

      would this recipe work using only whole wheat flour? If not could I use whole wheat and regular?

      what kind of beer did you use to make this bread? I researched beer and found that ales have higher content of yeast. Does it really matter?

      Actually studies have been done, the alcohol does not all burn off while cooking.
      *copy and paste from Wikipedia*
      Alcohol in finished food
      A study by a team of researchers at the University of Idaho, Washington State University, and the US Department of Agriculture's Nutrient Data Laboratory calculated the percentage of alcohol remaining in a dish based on various cooking methods.[1] The results are as follows:

      alcohol added to boiling liquid and removed from heat: 85% alcohol retained
      alcohol flamed: 75% alcohol retained
      no heat, stored overnight: 70% alcohol retained
      baked, 25 minutes, alcohol not stirred into mixture: 45% alcohol retained
      baked/simmered, alcohol stirred into mixture: (see table)

      I wonder if kombucha would work in place of beer? If anyone does not know what kombucha is, they might have to google it, I don't know if I could do a very good job explaining it. It is like a ferment, but you can keep it non alcoholic, or very very little anyway, and you use a SCOBY to make it. It is gut health promoting drink.
