  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 12 oz beer light in color
  • 3 cups all purpose flour sifted
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup salted butter melted


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  • Butter the inside of the loaf pan and set aside.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar into a large mixing bowl.
  • Pour beer into the bowl with dry ingredients. Stir to combine. Mixture will be sticky.
  • Transfer bread mixture to loaf pan. Use a spoon to spread bread mixture out to edges while leaving it somewhat uneven on the top to give it a more rustic look when it’s done cooking.
  • Pour melted butter over the bread mixture and place in the oven at 375 degrees.
  • Cook at 375 degrees for 1 hour, uncovered.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 15 minutes.
  • Serve with butter, honey, and jam


● Check bread at 50 minutes cook time. If too brown on the top cover with foil for the remaining 10 minutes.
● Sifting the flour is the most important part of this whole recipe. The bread will be lighter and more airy if sifted. If not sifted then it will be a more dense bread.
● The top of this bread will be buttery and crunchy after it’s done cooking.
