Beer Bread

Beer Bread is quite possibly the easiest bread you will ever make!

My friend JH is one of the most amazing domestic divas you will ever meet... not only is she an amazing cook and seamstress, but she can hunt, kill, butcher, and cook her own game.  Deer, fish, you name it!  She's a Jackie of all trades.

After college, JH wrote out by hand a bunch of her best recipes for me, and I still keep that little binder with me when I want to try something that is guaranteed to be delicious.  When I saw her recipe for beer bread, I couldn't believe how simple it was.  If you want to treat yourself to something delicious, or make something special for the beer-lover in your life, this is a great baked good to try.

JH's Beer Bread (one of her husband's favorites!)

-3 c. flour
-3 T. baking powder
-1 t. salt
-12 oz. Guinness beer (I used Young's Double Chocolate Stout to add chocolatey flavor!)
-1/2 c. melted butter
-1/3 c. sugar

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Pour in beer.  Stir until mixed, it's okay if it's lumpy!  Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and pour melted butter over top.  Place in a cold oven, set temperature to 375 degrees F and bake for 1 hour.

Tastes best when warm and buttered with a mixture of honey and butter.  (I drizzled honey over melted butter on mine!  Yum!)
