This Sweet Beer Bread recipe is AWESOME!!! It's SUPER EASY to make & bake and takes very little time to get it on the table. This a dense bread that is wonderful with brothy soups or toasted with jam on top... *remembering that wonderful breakfast.*
Oh and if you have two loaf pans, go ahead and double this recipe. This bread won't last more than two days. It's very hard not to slice off a piece every time you walk past it, VERY HARD. On the other hand, if you have a small family, then consider sharing the loaf with a neighbor. Fresh baked bread is a wonderful gift to receive no matter what time of year.
HERE'S HOW SIMPLE IT IS
- 3 cups flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
- 12 ounces beer
- 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
Heat the oven to 350ºF. Coat non-stick loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Pour in the beer and stir until the dry ingredients are moistened. The dough will be sticky. Press the dough into the loaf pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
Pour melted butter over the top of the loaf, then bake for another 10 minutes. Allow to cool 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate.
