I call this a Last Minute Sprite Bread Recipe, because it truly was made last minute. Late in the afternoon I was trying to decide what to make for dinner to go along with our leftover corn beef. I looked up some recipes for bread. I came up with this easy Sprite bread recipe by combining a few different beer bread recipes and doing some improvising.
Important note: When making bread it is important to sift the flour. This helps the bread come out light and bread-like. If you do not sift, your bread can come out hard and brick-like.
Last Minute Sprite Bread Recipe
- 3 cups of self rising flour sifted
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 teaspoon dry active yeast
- 1 can Sprite
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Grease a loaf pan.
- Mix all of the ingredients (reserving a few teaspoons of butter) either in the greased loaf pan or a separate bowl. Do not over mix. The dough should not have any dry ingredients visible.
- If you mixed your ingredients in the bowl, transfer to the dough to the loaf pan.
- Pour the remaining butter on top of the dough.
- Bake for around 45 minutes or until fully baked inside. Use the toothpick test. If an inserted toothpick comes out dry, the bread should be done.
- Remove the bread from the loaf pan.
- Let sit for at least 15 minutes before slicing.
It’s that easy! The bread came out super moist with a nice hearty crust on the outside. I’m snacking on the fresh, warm bread as I write this.
