Beer Bread

   It had been back in college since I'd tried to make beer bread. So when one of my coworkers said that she had a recipe for beer bread, I was all for it. I like breads of all kinds, but a mix-and-bake quick bread is an easy side dish for any meal.
  I had made chicken and sausage gumbo and thought some bread on the side would be good. This is a thick, dense bread that would be good for sopping up gravy. The next night when I made chicken and noodles, I toasted it lightly. This gave it a nice crisp crust but with a soft inside and made the hubby happy.

Beer Bread
3 cups flour, sifted
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sugar
1-12 oz. beer (not light)
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled

Preheat oven to 350.
Mix dry ingredients and slowly add beer. Pour into greased loaf pan.
Pour melted butter over top for crisper crust. Bake 1 hour.
