This is the first time I have ever made this and it turned out well.
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp. baking powder (1 Tbsp. plus 1 1/2 tsp.)
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 – 12 ounce bottle or can of beer, room temperature
1/2 stick melted butter
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and sugar.
Add the beer and stir until blended. Put in a lightly greased loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour.
Remove bread from oven. Melt butter and garlic (if using) and pour over the top of the bread. Allow the bread to rest in the pan for 10-15 minutes before removing. Remove from pan and let it slightly cool. Slice and serve.
