Beer Bread (by Rozanne Gold)
6 tablespoons sugar
12 oz. beer, at room temperature
3 cups self-rising flour
Heat oven to 350F. In medium-size enamel pot over medium heat,
cook sugar until caramelized and light-brown in colour; remove
from heat. Slowly pour in beer; liquid will foam and bubble.
Mix well with wooden spoon until all sugar is dissolved. In
large bowl, combine flour and 1 teaspoon salt (if desired);
slowly pour in liquid. Mix until ingredients are incorporated
and dough is smooth. Place dough in 9-inch nonstick loaf pan.
Bake until toothpick inserted into bread comes out clean, about
1 hour. Remove bread from oven and let cool on rack. Makes one
loaf; 16 slices.

Notes: In order to dissolve the sugar I had to keep the beer &
sugar mixture over medium heat while stirring. Let me
know if you run into the same problem. This bread was
very flavorful. Gold recommends that people experiment
with various types of beer, stout and ale.
BTW, this recipe by Rozanne Gold was printed in the
September 1996 issue of Essence magazine.
