Is there any better smell in the world than bread baking in the oven? My house smells amazing right now and two slices of Beer Bread made a great lunch.

Best Beer Bread Recipe
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 2 tbsp. honey
- 12 oz. beer
- 1/2 cup salted butter melted and divided
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9×5 loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix well.
- Add the honey, beer and 1/4 cup of the melted butter to the bowl. Stir until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Using the back of a spoon or a rubber spatula, smooth the top so the batter is even. Pour the remaining 1/4 cup of melted butter evenly over the top. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out totally clean.
- Let bread sit for 5 minutes. Use a butter knife to release the bread from the sides of the pan and turn the bread out onto a cutting board. Cut into slices using a serrated bread knife and serve.
