Rainy and cozy weekends usually consist of a little baking in my kitchen. This past weekend I tried out a new recipe called Honey Beer Bread by rainy day gal (I know, how appropriate). So yummy!
Honey Beer Bread
Yield: one 9×9″ loaf of bread.
- 4 cup bread flour
- 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 12 oz bottle of beer (the lighter the beer..the lighter beer taste.) (plus some beer for drinking :)
- 1/2 cup club soda
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375F. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Pour in the beer, club soda and honey. Stir just until moistened—the dough will be lumpy and sticky.
Spread into a greased 9×9″ pan. Brush the dough with melted butter and pour the remaining butter on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Turn onto a wire rack to cool before serving.
