Quick & Easy Beer Bread

It all started at one of those at-home party/demonstrations – my obsession with beer bread.  At this particular party, that was one of the products that they were trying to sell in a mix form – just add beer and bake.  While I did not mind purchasing a box or two at a time, my habit was beginning to get costly.  You see, each mix cost around $7.

I was mentioning this to a friend and she told me that she had a recipe for beer bread that I could make from scratch.  While it was good, I tweaked it a little and came up with this version which is quite wonderful.

– 3 cups of flour (King Arthur’s works the best)

– 1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder

– 1/3 cup plus 2 Tablespoons of Sugar

– 1 Can (12 oz) Of Beer of your choice

– 4 Tablespoons of Melted Butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder and sugar.  Mix together and then slowly add your can of beer – mixing the entire time.  Lightly grease a loaf pan (metal or glass) with cooking spray.  Pour batter in to the baking pan and then top with the melted butter.

Bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour (top should be golden brown).

This bread is great on its own but is also a nice change to some of your more “fancy” dips – spinach dip, hot artichoke dip, etc.  It is also great on the side of a nice hearty bowl of soup.
