Yield: 6 servings
Cornmeal, to dust
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar or honey
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 (12-oz.) can beer (pale ale or a light beer)
Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan and dust with cornmeal. Set aside.
In a bowl, mix together flour, sugar or honey, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the beer to form a batter and scoop into the prepared pan.
Bake 30–35 minutes.
Cool completely before slicing. For best results, slice and toast before serving.
Tip: To use self-rising flour instead of all-purpose flour, replace with an equal amount and omit the baking powder and salt.
