  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 12 oz beer (your favorite kind)
  • 5 Tbsp honey
  • 3 - 4 Tbsp melted butter divided


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly spray the sides of a 9x5" loaf pan. Set aside.
  • To a mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder and salt, and stir to combine. Pour in the beer and honey and stir until no flour streaks remain.
  • Add half of the melted butter to the bottom of prepared loaf pan and tilt the pan around so the butter coats the bottom of the pan. Transfer batter to pan, spreading it out into an even layer.
  • Pour remaining half of the melted butter over the top of the batter, brushing it around so it evenly coats the top.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs.
  • Let bread cool in the pan for 5-7 minutes, then turn out carefully onto a wire rack to finish cooling.


** can easily be doubled to make two loaves
Bread is great with butter, honey, or toasted!
