Quick and easy beer bread

Beer Bread
I'm sure y'all have heard of this. It's the quickest and easiest way to produce bread that I've ever seen.

3 cups all purpose flour (sifted)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
12 ounces of your favorite frosty brew (Shiner Bock for me)

Combine dry ingredients and stir in beer slowly to produce a thick batter. Spread batter into a greased 8" bread pan and place in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. That's it!

If you want more complexity try adding a couple of teaspoons of dill, rosemary or other herbs for flavor. A cup of grated parmesan or chedder also makes a nice addition. For a glaze you can melt a 1/4 cup of butter or beat an egg with two teaspoons of water, brush on before cooking.
