Three Ingredient Soda (or Beer) Bread

For years, I’ve been buying beer bread mix from companies like Tastefully Simple or Wildtree. I’m not going to lie, they’re expensive. But I’ve always been under the impression that they were so much easier than if I were to make it myself. I mean, you can’t exactly get much easier than opening a package and pouring a can of soda in, can you?

Except you can.

This bread literally has only three ingredients. Measure, pour your soda in, and bake.

Put some self-rising flour in a bowl and add a little sugar. Then grab your can of choice… because my family does not drink or purchase alcohol at all, we use soda, but you can make this a traditional beer bread if you prefer.

This time around, I used a can of Pepsi.

Pour it into the bowl with the self-rising flour mixture.

Barely mix it, just until it’s combined, and you get a thick dough.

Then, pour it into a greased loaf pan.

Bake it, and just about 15 minutes before it’s done, take it out of the oven and spread some margarine on top.

Pop that back in the oven for 15 more minutes, and it’ll develop a nice golden brown crust.

This is awesome served warm… and it really goes well with the lasagna soup I posted recently!

This recipe is so easy, and it came to me in a handwritten note in the recipe box. I love that it was such an easy bread and it didn’t require any weird ingredients… three things. That’s it. It’s much cheaper than buying a box mix all the time, and it tastes just as good, if not better. While you’re at it, make up a few loaves to take to friends and neighbors. I know they’ll love it!
