Homemade Beer Bread

I immediate "pinned" this copy cat recipe when I saw it on Pinterest and declared, "I must bake this tomorrow!" Have you ever had Tastefully Simple's Bountiful Beer Bread in a box? If so, you know why I was so quick to make this. It's absolutely delicious! I have given it as gifts it is so yummy! But, it is also expensive. It's one of those things you might hoard in the cupboard.....waiting and waiting until that perfect meal comes along before you actually use it because you know you won't be able to easily buy it again!! Well, there will be no more hoarding of the expensive boxed bread mix, folks! Because this recipe was mind-blowingly easy. I couldn't believe how much this bread tasted like the boxed version! The recipe comes from the Short Stop Blog and I thank the blogger greatly for sharing her copy cat recipe with the world!

Here is her recipe verbatim:

3 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (12-ounce) bottle beer
3 tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 5" x 9" loaf pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl. Add beer* and mix until combined (Dough will be sticky). Place dough into loaf pan. Pour melted butter over top of loaf.

Bake at 350 degrees, uncovered, for 50-60 minutes**, or until top is golden brown and toothpick comes out clean from center.

Serve warm or cold.

*If desired, you can substitute a 12-ounce can of soda for the beer in this recipe.
**From The Wooden Spoon Diaires- I baked mine for only 50 minutes and it was perfect!
