Course: Bread
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1 loaf
Author: Malinda Linnebur
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 (12 oz) beer of choice
  • 1/4 cup butter cut into 8 squares
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9x5 or 8x4 loaf pan with butter, set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Be sure to whisk well to incorporate some air into the flour. You can also sift the flour if you prefer. Add in the honey and beer. Stir with a rubber spatula just until combined.
  3. Spoon into prepared loaf pan. Place the 8 pats of butter across the top of the batter. Bake for 40-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes before removing.
Recipe Notes

1. If you prefer a slightly softer crust melt the butter and add it to the batter along with the honey and beer.

2. If there are any leftovers wrap tightly with plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.
