About this project
I don't know why, but this seems to always be the bread I will make to eat on Sunday nights :) Don't ask---I'm a reverend's daughter, and I'm making beer bread, but there you go! It's kind of a "take off" from Indian Fry Bread (I'm originally from Arizona, so Oldham Tash every year held glorious fry bread for me)---I made it up in my head!
Basically, you mix 2 cups of white flour, a pinch of salt, a pinch of sugar (to taste), 1 heaping tsp. of baking powder, 1-2 cups of cold water, and about 1/2 bottle of beer. I used the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, but you can use any beer. Here it is in the bowl (which happened to be the only bowl that was clean!). Mix it well---it'll be sticky :)
NEW NOTE (12/21/08)---I substituted Rice Flour and the batter came out WAY SMOOTHER!!
You then grease a pan (either with non-stick spray or butter---I used butter because that was what we had), and drop forkfuls or spoonfuls of batter into the skillet. Then cook it just like you would a pancake (I tend to like mine a little doughy, my husband prefers them crispy). If you want it flat, just smooth the batter out---I like mine thick :)
