The recipe for beer bread is so simple, even a governor of Texas could do it:
3 cups self-rising flour
4-5 tablespoons sugar
1 can beer
Mix together. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Bake in loaf pan, cookie sheet or anything you like.
Every other recipe in the book is attributed to an individual, except for this one. Maybe making beer bread was so ubiquitous that it's something everyone in 1977 knew how to do, like disco dancing?
I used a bottle of "Guinness Blonde Ale" in the mix. It didn't seem quite done after 35 minutes in the oven so I kept in baking in 10-minute increments - all told it probably cooked about an hour.
