Step 1

Beer Bread Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Mix together the Flour, Salt and Baking Powder with a fork.

3. Add the Brown Sugar and stir together well.

4. Pour the Beer in the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix with a hand mixer until all ingredients are combined.

5. Spoon the Beer Bread batter into a greased loaf pan.

6. Pour the melted Butter right over the Beer Bread Dough.
