Baking for Dummies - Easy Recipes

  1. Beer Bread: My grandma originally taught me this recipe when I was young.  It’s a simple yet delicious recipe you must try!


  • 3 cups of flour (sifted)

  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • ¼ cup of sugar

  • One 12oz can of beer

  • ½ cup of melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees

  2. Mix Dry Ingredients and beer

  3. Pour into a greased loaf pan

  4. Pour melted butter over mixture

  5. Bake for one hour, remove from pan and cool for 15 minutes

Yield: one loaf

2.)No Bake Cookies: Such an amazing sweet treat.


  • ½ cup of butter 

  • 2 cups of granulated salt

  • ½ cup of milk

  • ¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ½ cup of creamy peanut butter

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 3 cups of quick cooking oats


  1. Before getting started, make sure to gather all of your ingredients and measure everything out. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Place the butter, sugar, milk, and unsweetened cocoa powder in a saucepan and heat over medium heat, making sure to stir often until the butter is melted and everything is well combined. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil and allow to boil for 60 seconds (make sure to set a timer!) stirring occasionally.

  3. Remove from the heat, and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until fully combined. Stir in the oats and mix until all of the oats are coated with the mixture and everything is well combined.

  4. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets (I like to use a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop). Allow to cool for 20-30 minutes, serve, and enjoy!

Yield: 30 cookies
