My favorite comfort food in Germany (though I am not sure it's German, per se) as a young girl was when my mom made beer bread. Its so yummy warm and with butter. As an adult, I was thrilled to learn how simple it is to prepare. Only 5 ingredients. Here is the recipe for anyone interested. Please, if you know any simple quick favorites, post them!!
3 cups self-rising flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 - 12 ounce bottle or can of beer (darker the better--at room temp.)
1 cup shredded cheese, your choice (cheddar or parm for me) optional
1/4-1/2 cup butter (melted)
Combine first 4 ingredients. Pour into greased loaf pan. Pour melted butter on top. Bake at 375 (F) 1 hour. Remove from pan and give it about 15 minutes to cool.
Oh yea, and its fat free and only 1/2 a calorie........:P

Years ago when I was stationed in Berlin the housekeeper at the BOQ, (no, I wasn't an officer), made what she called "beirbrot". It was made with Berliner Kindl beer but it was a risen bread. She chewed me out when I put peanut butter on it.

One of the easiest sounding recipes is from the movie Steel Magnolias... Truvy's Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa - to quota the movie:

"It's a cuppa flour, a cuppa sugar, a cuppa fruit cocktail with the juice, mix and bake 'til gold and bubbly."
"Sounds awfully rich."
"It is, so I serve it with ice cream to cut the sweetness."

Anyone ever tried this one?

No, but I may need a cuppa insulin.

haven't tried that one but this cobbler is similar and very good.

1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 stick margarine or butter
1 large can peaches with syrup

Melt the butter in 8x8 baking dish in a 325 oven. Mix flour, sugar, and milk into a smooth batter. Pour batter into the melted butter in dish but DO NOT STIR. Spoon fruit evenly in the batter. Drizzle syrup over all, but DO NOT STIR. Bake in 325 oven for 25-30 minutes till golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream.

originally, this was my Grandma's recipe. She told me she made it for Grandpa when they were courting with a quart of peaches she had canned herself. They married in 1922 so the recipe is quite old.

My grandma taught me that same recipe, it is good! I like to boil down my own peaches, though. Yum.

These are all pretty similar to the classic "Dump Cake" recipe, which is just about the easiest one I know, other than the "cuppa" peanut butter cookie recipe.

Dump Cake
Any box of cake mix
1 stick of butter (yeah, I know!)
2 cans of pie filling (I like cherry best)

Dump pie filling in a 13X9 baking dish, dump cake mix over it until well covered, then dot the top with the butter. Bake at 350 degrees until, well, brown and bubbly!

Cuppa Peanut Butter Cookie recipe

One cup of peanut butter
one cup of sugar
one egg

Mix well, then drop large spoonfuls on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees until slightly browned. This can take anywhere from 15-20 minutes, I have found, but if the cookies are underdone or overdone, it doesn't really matter, they are so good you will inhale them and start reaching for your cup measure again when you wake up from the sugar coma.

I should also add that I usually either double or triple that PB cookie recipe, with varying results. In the interest of consistency, you should try one batch first to see how it comes out.

I just got this one in e-mail and I thought it would crack you all up, so I'm posting it for all to enjoy!

Here is a chicken recipe that also includes the use of popcorn as a stuffing - imagine that!! I thought it was perfect for people, like me, who just are not sure how to tell when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not
dried out.

Give this a try.

6-7 lb. Chicken
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good)
1 cup uncooked popcorn (ORVILLE REDENBACHERS LOW FAT)
Salt/pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush chicken well with melted butter, salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven. Listen for the popping sounds.

When the chicken's butt blows the oven door open and the chicken flies across the room, it is done.

Just made this. Oh my, it is so very good. I urge everyone to try it because you will not be sorry. I did not use self-rising flour but basically made my own by adding salt, and baking powder. Excellent! Thanks for sharing. I used the darkest beer I had and the bread even turned out brownish. Very moist.

Have a quick one for pumpkin bread use one angel food cake mix, the kind with only one package in the box suggest pillsbury. One half teaspoons pumkin pie spice, 1 15 ounce can of pumpkin and 2/3 cup of water mix well pour in two loaf pans and bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Do not grease pans. low in fat and calories.
