Beer Bread

I've never had beer bread in my life until I went to a SimplyTasteful event held at a friend's house. It was served with a spinach herb dip, but I fell in love with the beer bread. I love bread...all kinds. I was determined to find a recipe to make beer bread. I can't remember how beer bread tastes like, but I'm happy with the recipe I came up with. It's nice and crunchy on the top with a soft, chewy inside. You can smell the beer too...for this recipe I used Budwieser.

 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
4 cups flour
2 Tbsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
2 eggs slightly beaten
1/3 cup white sugar
2 Tbsp butter, melted

In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Add beer and continue to mix, then add the eggs. Batter will be sticky. Pour into a 9 x 5 inch greased loaf pan. Pound the pan on the table to level off the batter.

Preheat oven at 350 F. Bake for 60-70 minutes brushing the melted butter on the top the last 10 minutes. Let it cool for about 10 minutes. The top will be crunchy, and the insides will be soft.

the batter was very sticky, but came off the bowl very nicely too

I wasn't patient so my bread was higher on one side than the other, but it was still good
