Lazy Irish Beer Bread

St. Patricks day is this weekend and why not celebrate with putting green food coloring & beer in everything we make?! Here is an easy recipe for beer bread… one of my favorite bread recipes!!

2 1/2 cups self rising flour
12 ounces room temperature beer (the better the beer, the better the bread. I use Harps beer made by Guiness in Dublin)
2 tablespoons sugar
1Hand mix all ingredients only until well mixed (do not beat or use a mixer).
2Put mixture into a greased loaf pan.
3Preheat your oven to 375º F degrees.
4Bake for 45 minutes.

Pistachio Cake

Every year around St. Patty’s day I make my famous Pistachio cake.  It’s also perfect for Easter! It is so easy & festive and the moist, pistachio flavor is incredible.  The recipe can be found from last year’s post:
