Our blog is dedicated to seasonal living: cooking with local produce (sometimes our own), sewing for the home and searching out vintage bargains.

We believe that most of the pleasure is in the journey - in the making and creating, even if in a simple way.

Easy Texas Beer Bread

This is a very easy bread recipe that I adapted from a recipe in an American countryside magazine. You can add cheese, oregano or thyme, if you like, with the flour, salt and sugar, to put your own spin on the bread
3 cups self-raising flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Bottle or can of beer, at room temperature
Quarter cup of butter
Grease a 1lb loaf tin. Mix the flour, sugar and salt. Add the beer. Mix. Put in the tin and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Pour the melted butter over the top and return to the oven for an extra 10-15 minutes.
