I don't make a lot of bread. I don't have a bread maker and I hate kneading. I also don't have a lot of patience to let bread rest, rise and rest some more.
Which is why this bread seemed incredibly intriguing. No machine, no kneading, no waiting. Except for the oven. This was the easiest bread I've made.
The bread came out moist with a buttery, crunchy top and we all loved it! We ate it with a delicious chunky meaty chili.
Recipe from Recipe Rhapsody
3 cups of flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 (12 oz.) bottle of beer
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside. Sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and stir briefly to combine. Pour beer over the flour mixture and stir to combine. The mixture will be thick and not like regular bread dough. Dump into the prepared pan and spread out as evenly as possible. Pour the melted butter over the top and bake for 1 hour. The butter will run down the sides and underneath as it bakes. I recommend putting a pan on the rack under the bread in case the butter leaks over, it did somewhat on mine. Remove from pan and cool slightly before serving.
