My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Quick Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Now this isn't a "I think I've died and gone to heaven" loaf of bread. This is a, "I'm dying for a bologna, pimento cheese, sliced tomato, or mayonnaise sandwich", kind of bread. And I'm not going to drive 20 miles for a loaf of bread. I can have this made and be eating in the time it would take me to go buy a loaf, visit with everyone I run into and get home. Plus, it's hard to believe anything this easy can be this good! And I certainly don't have time to let bread rise for 2-3 hours.

Quick Whole Wheat Beer Bread
1 loaf
print recipe

2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 tablespoons honey
12-ounce can or bottle of beer at room temperature (not opened previously)

Sift together dry ingredients. Stir in honey and beer. Pour into greased and floured loaf pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes. (When done, bread should come away from sides of pan and a straw inserted into center should come out clean.) Slice and serve warm or at room temperature. Makes great toast!


  1. I use a recipe very similar and the bread always turns out great.

  2. this is just the ticket for that exact moments,, yummo!

  3. Aww, if only I had the whole wheat flour!
