Beer Bread

Got an extra bottle a beer laying around this weekend? The yeast in the beer makes it the easiest bread recipe I know! The house is filled with the unbelievable smell of fresh-baked bread and the batter literally takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. What could be more simple?

Ingredients

  • 3

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 2

    Tablespoons sugar

  • 1

    Tablespoon baking powder

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    Tablespoon honey

  • 1

    bottle (12 ounces) beer (not lite beer)

  • 1

    stick of butter, melted

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9″ x 5″ x 3″ inch loaf pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a wooden spoon, stir the beer and honey into the dry ingredients until just mixed. (I recommend warming your honey in the microwave for a few seconds beforehand to make it easier to stir in!) Pour half the melted butter into the loaf pan. Then spoon the batter into the pan, and pour the rest of the butter on top of the batter. (Use a pastry brush to spread it around if you’d like.) Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until top is golden brown and a toothpick/knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serve warm! Oh and don't forget the butter!
