I am making this bread for the husband to eat while watching the Patriots/Giants game tonight. This will be accompanied by a brown sugar meat loaf and some nice baked potatoes and veggies.
1 bottle (12 fl oz) Old Fezziwig ale from Sam Adams (or any other beer you desire)
3 cups self-rising flour
3 tbs white sugar (I don’t recommend a sugar substitute)
Mix the sugar and flour together in a large bowl, slowly pour in beer and continue to mix.
The batter will be sticky. Pour into a 9×5 in greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes.
The top will be crunchy and the insides will be soft. Tastes awesome topped with butter or a cheese spread.
About the beer:
Old Fezziwig® Ale is the Christmas cookie of beer. Bursting with spices of the season and a remarkably full body, it helps those long winter nights pass much quicker. The full body hits the palate first with a depth of malt character ranging from sweeter toffee and caramel notes to the more dark, roasty chocolate notes. Then come the spices in full force. Cinnamon, ginger and orange peel dance on the tongue bringing with them the celebratory spirit that goes hand in hand with the season. (see http://www.samueladams.com/world_of_beer.aspx)
