eating things. [honey beer bread]

there’s something about seeing your house filled with people you love, something about feeding people, especially on days when it seems like you can’t make a dent in any of the larger, more theoretical challenges in life. – shauna niequist

I really like food.

What I love so much about food is that it brings people together and usually makes people happy.  I love having people over, creating things in the kitchen, and laughing around the table as we all partake.

This fool-proof recipe came from a friend a few years ago and is one of my favorite indulgences to throw together a few times a year to have with breakfast, a snack, a late night snack, you know…let’s call it what it is, a calorie laden guilty pleasure that takes 3 minutes to get in the oven.

Honey Beer Bread

3 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar

3 teaspoons baking powder

12 ounces of room temperature beer [not light, I usually use Shiner or Shiner blonde]

1/2 stick butter

honey to taste

Comine flour, sugar, baking powder and then add beer.  Pour into lightly greased loaf pan.  Bake at 350° for about 40 minutes or until the top has a touch of golden color, remove and pour melted butter over top of loaf and return to oven for 15-20 minutes or until loaf is golden.

This is best enjoyed fresh from the oven with a dab of honey.  You can thank me later.
