Beer Batter Bread
This is the best bread you’ve ever tasted and it’s embarrassingly easy to make. No kneading or fuss.The bread is great served with kielbasa sausages or hot dogs and warm sauerkraut.
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
4 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon salt
12 ounces beer, any kind, at room temperature
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2. Pour the flour, baking powder, sugar, rosemary and salt into a non-stick 9-x-5-x-3-inch loaf pan. Add the beer and butter, mixing as little as possible. The batter will be lumpy, that’s fine.
3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Turn out onto a rack to cool.
