Happy New Year!
(Courtesy of The Good Housekeeping Step-By-Step Cookbook)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 T. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 can or bottle (12 oz.) beer
4 T. margarine or butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 9" by 5" loaf pan (you can use cooking spray). In large bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt until evenly combined. Stir in beer and melted margarine just until moistened (batter will be lumpy).
Spoon batter into loaf pan and bake 40 minutes, or until golden and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack 5 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely on rack.
Your house will be filled with the wonderful aroma of freshly baked bread!
