I found this recipe for beer bread in the USA Weekend March 4-6, 2011 issue from the newspaper. The title caught my attention immediately, "Homemade bread in under an hour" , I definitely had to try it. And so since it turned out really yummy I thought I'd share. The recipe is as follows:
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 TBS sugar
1 TB baking powder
1 1/2 tsps salt
12 ounces beer
1 egg beaten
Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat over to 375 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add beer and stir with a fork until just combined. Turn dough onto a floured surface;knead quickly to form a ball. Place bread on a baking sheet and slit an X on top with a serrated or very sharp knife. Brush loaf with egg wash. Bake until golden brown, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
