Food: Beer Bread

This past weekend was cold and dreary- perfect soup weather! We were at a pumpkin patch for a good part of the afternoon and I hadn't planned accordingly to get a loaf of bread in the breadmaker (it takes 3 hours!) to have with the soup (white chicken chili, super yummy). I needed a bread recipe. A fast one. I had made a bread like this before at a family gathering and quickly looked one up and found this one over at food.com. Super quick - it was ready in an hour! The recipe calls for beer, but you can also use sprite or ginger ale :)
Beer Bread - adapted from food.com
3 cups all purpose flour, sifted (don't have a sifter? spoon the flour into the measuring cup)
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 (12 oz) can beer - or use ginger ale or sprite
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients together. Add beer (or ginger ale or sprite) and mix well. Pour (more like spoon) batter into a 9"x5" loaf pan. Pour melted butter over top of batter. Bake for 1 hour or until golden brown on top. Cool 15 minutes, then slice and serve. Enjoy!
P.S. More details on yesterday's post soon... If you follow me on Instagram, I posted more of a sneak peek yesterday ;)
