330 gr. self rising flour (or just flour and a tsp. of baking powder)
1 small bottle or can (300cc) of malt beer (malt, not regular beer)
1 cup of nuts (any nuts, or a mixture of nuts, or sunflower seeds, or sesame, whatever!)
1 bunch of dill, just cut up coarsely (not fine)
a lot of garlic, crunched (8 or nine pieces, almost half a head)
1/2 tsp salt
Throw everything together in a bowl, mix well with a wooden spoon - it stays moist and 'mushy'  - pour it in an English cake pan (I use disposable aluminum pans), lightly oiled, put it in the preheated oven (200 degree) and bake for an hour - then  take the bread out of its form, it is usually still moist at the bottom, and put it back in the oven, without the pan for another five minutes or so, till the bottom is dry. 
Now, the good thing with this easy to make and so tasty bread is, that you can experiment with the ingredients:  exchange the nuts with a cup of dry fried onions, instead of dill use parsley, or basil, or oregano, or rosemary, skip the garlic and use caraway seeds, or KEZACH (you remember? if you don't, scroll down some posts), or any other spice you like. You can put cubes of salami or pastrami in it, or sun dried tomatoes (!!), or cubes of salty white cheese (skip the salt), whatever tickles your fancy! Try! Fresh out of the oven, with some butter melted on it you can easily finish half of a loaf just so! And it requires only about 10 minutes of work!

Here I doubled the ingredients and made two loaves (I used 1 cup walnuts and 1 cup sesame):
