That sounds good! The only kind of beer bread i've eaten has been one made with a Tastefully Simple mix (which was pretty good). I hate dealing with yeast, and to be honest had not really heard of self-rising flour before. Sounds like a great invention that makes baked goods a lot easier!

Do you think this could be made with butter omitted or would that alter the flavor too much?

If you want to make your own self-rsisng flour, here's how it is done:

In a large mixing bowl, measure 6 cups of flour.
Add 3 tablespoons baking powder.
Add 1 tablespoon salt.

Either sift together or mix with a wire whisk until well combined.
Can be stored in airtight container for months.

Self-rising flour can be used in just about any baking recipe - just omit the baking powder and salt!

Regarding the butter - you don't have to use it.

An even easier recipe is to use 2 2/3 c. self-rising flour and 1 can (12 oz.) beer for easy beer bread!
