This bread was so good, the crust was light but crunchy and the interior tender and moist.
A while ago, my neighbor, who knows I don't drink, was coming out of his house with a beer in his hand (it was a very hot day) noticed I was there talking to his wife before picking up their son to come play with our son. Thinking I would decline and hoping to at least have the fun of a look of disdain he offered a cold beer. Having just seen a recipe for "beer biscuits" I told him yes but I would prefer to open it myself. I didn't tell him it would be later. So it was me enjoying his look of astonishment followed by disappointment as I thanked him and took my beer home. Later I took a plate of biscuits over, I think we're okay since he volunteered to tow my husband's car to the shop a few weeks later.
This week I happened upon two, different source. So...beer bread.
3 cups SIFTED flour ( I used spelt )
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 12 oz. beer
1/2 cup melted butter, divided
Preheat oven to 375F
Mix dry ingredients.
Pour into a well greased loaf pan and pour the rest of the melted butter on the top.
Bake for 1 hour or until a thermometer reads 190F.
