  • 3 cups flour (sifted)**
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 can beer (12 ounces / 33 cl )(of choice / room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted / divided)

**I sifted the flour two times, the second time I sifted the flour, baking powder and salt together.


    • Pre-heat oven to 350F (180C), grease and flour an 9x5 inch loaf pan (23 x 12 centimeters)
    • In a medium bowl add sifted flour mixture and sugar, beer and 1/4 cup of the melted butter.  Mix together with a wooden spoon just until combined. (I did 18 stirs with a wood spoon).
    • Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf pan top with the remaining 1/4 cup of melted butter and bake for approximately 55 - 60 minutes, check for doneness with a toothpick.
    • Let sit in loaf pan for 5 minutes before removing, then let sit 10 minutes before cutting.  Enjoy!
