Shakey's Bread

This one's a tribute to our trusty blue 1950 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery and the days it spent as a bread delivery truck. This bread may be made with any combo of dried herbs. Experiment with your faves like basil, thyme and rosemary.
-Ellen McKinney


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a loaf pan. Blend all of the ingredients in a bowl. Don't worry if the batter isn't smooth. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 40 minutes. The bread is baked when a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Our Chairman, Frank Heaps, likes to put full buds of garlic in his beer bread! Or try chunks of cheese or nuts. Serve with your favourite spread.
