George and Suzanne

George says this is one of the easiest – and best – breads he’s ever come across. The basic recipe is first, and his variations follow.

  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar (raw sugar works best)
  • 12 oz beer

Use a 4″ x 8″ bread pan. Mix and bake at 350° about 1 hour. Top with melted butter*

*This means melt a cube of butter and pour over the unbaked dough in the pan. Then bake for 1 hour. It is best to put the bread pan on a cookie sheet.


  • Use 1 1/2 – 2 cups whole wheat or rye flour.
  • add 1 tbsp caraway seeds or flax seeds
  • add 3 tbsp cranberrirs, currants, etc.
  • Use different beers, stouts, or ales.
