Honey Beer Bread
This bread is even more satisfying than most because it is so easy. There's no kneading or waiting for the dough to rise. No punching down. Basically nothing hard.
I made this with an India Pale Ale (IPA) which gave the bread a little bit of a bitter flavor that contrasted really well with the honey, but you can use whatever beer you have on hand. I can't wait to try it with a lot of different types and flavors of beer.
HONEY BEER BREAD
3 c. flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. honey
1 bottle beer (India Pale Ale preferably)
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
1. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
2. Stir in beer and honey with a wooden spoon.
3. Coat the bottom of a loaf pan with half of the butter. Spoon in the batter then brush the top of the loaf with the remaining melted butter.
4. Bake at 350˚ for 50-60 minutes.
