3 cups self-rising flour - or, if using all purpose flour, add 11?2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1?2 teaspoon of salt to each cup.

3 heaping tablespoons sugar

1 12-ounce bottle or can of any beer (regular, dark or light, foreign or domestic). Best if it doesn't come from the refrigerator.

2 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease loaf pan. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar and beer. Stir well (about 5 minutes) until it's smooth and bubble free. If the mix seems dry and hard to stir, splash in a little water.

Pour the batter into the greased pan and bake it for an hour ( 70 minutes at 350 degrees). Makes one 9x5 inch loaf

For a crusty loaf, cover the pan lightly with aluminum foil (allowing the bread room to rise without hitting the foil) for the first 45 minutes of baking. Then remove the foil and brush the loaf with milk before returning it to the oven.

If you want to test for doneness, if a toothpick comes out clean, it's done.
