Honey Beer Bread

Honey Beer Bread
I love bread but making it scares me. It's the yeast! I had this recipe saved and made it as soon as we had some Sam Adams Summer Ale (our favorite seasonal beer) in the house. This recipe is the easiest recipe you will ever come across. Everything goes in one bowl, then to the bread pan, and lastly into the oven. An hour later you have a bread that is so delicious you won't be able to have just one small slice. The best part of this bread is it's versatility because the bread takes on the flavor of whatever beer you use.

Honey Beer Bread Recipe
Source: Adapted from The Cutting Edge of Ordinary
Makes 1 loaf

3 cups bread flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp honey
1 bottle (12 ounces) beer
4 Tbsp butter, melted

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.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until top is golden brown and a toothpick/knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
