A Chilly Florida day.

Florida is a little chilly today... I don't believe the temp is more than 50 degrees. The wind is whipping around and it's just not a pretty day to be outside. So I figured it would be a great day to cook and bake. Keith is preparing the ham for dinner and I made some dinner rolls and some awesome beer bread. I though I would share the recipe for the beer bread... it's yum! Yum! Yum! and Super Easy! Enjoy.

1 hour 3 min prep


3 cups flour (sifted)
3 teaspoons baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1 teaspoon salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1/4 cup sugar
1 (12 ounce) can beer
1/2 cup melted butter (1/4 cup will do just fine)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients and beer.
Pour into a greased loaf pan.
Pour melted butter over mixture.
Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes.

UPDATED NOTES: Sifting flour for bread recipes is a must-do.

The final result should be a thick, hearty and very tasteful bread, NOT A BRICK! ;).
