Honey Beer Bread


3 cups flour
12oz beer (a citrus lager works really well in this recipe, I use a homebrew with orange and lemon)
1/4 cup honey (get the real stuff not the cheap "honey" that's mostly corn syrup. Trust me, it makes a difference.)
1 TBSP baking powder
1 tsp salt
4 TBSP butter, melted


1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Microwave honey for 10 seconds so it pours and mixes easier.
4. Combine beer and honey with dry ingredients and mix until combined. You'll have a really wet, thick mixture that's more like a batter than a dough.
5. Brush your bread pan with butter.
6. Pour batter into bread pan.
7. Brush the top of the batter with the rest of the butter.
8. Bake for 45 minutes, until the top is golden and a pick comes out clean.
9. Serve immediately with honeybutter.

This is a great alternative to cornbread, and pairs well with chili, fried chicken, ham, cream soups/chowders, and bbq.
