Want a simple fresh bread, but hate all the work of kneading, mixing, measuring, etc? Here is an absolutely simple, no fail, 2 ingredients no-kneading bread recipe that will have you enjoying fresh bread in less than an hour (and most of that is simply baking time!)
The best part about this delicious bread is how wonderful it is toasted and slathered generously with homemade jam!
2-Ingredient No-Knead Bread
- 2 2/3 cup self-rising flour (myo)
- 12 oz beer, freshly opened (not Lite beer)
Folks, don’t waste your time making this with LITE beer of any brand, it won’t come out at all.
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 a 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 a 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!
