Beer Bread

This is the Beer Bread I brought to the last meeting.  I have made it many times and it has always turned out wonderfully.  This recipe is from the blog

Beer Bread

3 Cups all purpose flour

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1 1/2 Teaspoons salt ( I have had some people make this and say theirs was too salty.  Mine never has been.  I use sea salt, that might make a difference

4 Tablespoons sugar (I use organic)

1 12 ounce bottle/can of beer (I have used Bud Light every time I have made it)

3 Tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 X 5 inch loaf pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Sift well with a fork. Pour in beer, stir until a stiff batter is formed, but do not over mix. Scrape dough into prepared pan. Melt butter and brush across the top of the dough. (Omit the butter to make vegan).

Bake 40 minutes or so until knife inserted in middle comes out clean.
