Super Easy, Super Yummy, Homemade Bread

Man, it's been a while since I shared a recipe on my blog.
Here's one for you that will make your house smell amazing,
your mouth super happy, and your body feel like it needs a trip to the gym.
It's that good.

Buttery Beer Bread

3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 12-ounce can/bottle of beer
1/2 cup butter, melted {or less...see note below.*} 
  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl and stir with a whisk
  3. Add beer and stir with a wooden spoon until incorporated
  4. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and pour beer bread batter into pan
  5. Pour melted butter over the top of the beer bread batter {*whoa ~ that seemed like a LOT of butter, so I only poured half of it on top and the bread was still delicious!}
  6. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes
  7. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing from the pan 
{found the recipe here ~ changed it up just a tad}

I found a recipe in my collection {in my mom's handwriting} for beer bread that has only two ingredients:
2-2/3 cup self-rising flour, and one 12-oz can of beer
Mix and bake the same as above, and Mom's recipe has variations with it. One is to add a cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the flour before mixing in the beer, and I know that would be a winner around my house. May have to try that one next time...

I made chili to go with this bread and my hubby was a happy man.
{ it was Sunday and he was watching football,
but I think the bread was the highlight...I think...}

Peace, love, and warm bread.

I can almost smell it from here! It looks perfect for mopping up the juices from a good Irish Stew :)
