Collective baking has put tremendous pressure on the supply of baking essentials. In grocery stores across the country, flour and yeast are in short supply and in many cases cannot be found. But with this recipe, you can make homemade bread without yeast.

  • 3 cups pastry flour (substitute all-purpose flour if pastry flour is not available)
  • 4½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1 12oz can of beer (1½ cups)
  1. Preheat the oven 375F. Line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Add the melted butter and beer and stir gently to combine. A few lumps of butter will remain.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until lightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the top of the loaf comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.
  4. Let the bread cool for 5 minutes, then remove from the pan and cool fully on a wire rack. Store tightly, wrapped in plastic wrap, for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to one month.
