Beer Bread

When we first got married I would make homemade bread all the time. Then... I stopped. I had to stop because a new loaf would come out of the oven and Michael and I would down the entire loaf while it was warm. I love carbs and bread too much. Not to long ago I went to one of those parties to try and sell you stuff, beer bread was one of the items that we had to sample and I fell in love with it. I did not want to pay the high price for their mix, so I went on a mission to find a cheaper version:

Beer Bread
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey (can omit for a more savory loaf)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) beer
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted (use a whole stick if you are daring)
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. 
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.  It will look buttery, which is obviously a good thing!
Place the loaf pan on a cooking sheet (in case any butter drips while baking) and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until top is golden brown and a toothpick/knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Enjoy! Let me know what you think.
