This is as easy as 1-2-3, whip it up for lunch. it realy only takes minutes to make. Just crack open a tinny, add some self-raising flour and stir. The recipe is versatile itself. You can add a chop of 4-6 sundried tomatoes, a handful of black olives or a sprinkling of chopped or grated cheese. Fried chopped bacon or ham is also yummy. Best made in individual large muffin tins but you can also make it in small loaf tins. It makes 6-8 large muffins or 2-3 small loaves or 1 larger one. it can also be cooked in little terra-cotta flower pots. The cooking time depends on the size of loaf you've chose. You'll need: 450g Self-raising flour pinch of salt (approx 1 tspn) 1 can beer All you do is sift the flour into a bowl. make a hole in the middle, add the stubby of beer and stir it all in. A bit of oil doesnt go amiss. Thats it, nothing else, unless you want to add some other flavourings. Pile into greased or oil-sprayed bread or muffin tins, filling quite high. Slighty dampen the tops of bread with wet finger tips. Cook in moderately hot oven 200C-225C for about 30-40 minutes or until puffed, golden brown and cooked, and they sound dry and hollow when rapped with your knuckles. Serve hot with butter.

Im starting to collect one of those "to cook" recipe lists too, I love baking and do try to make all the recipes I love, but to do so may mean having to take time away from the internet to make them all, isnt there so many....
