  • In a large bowl, whisk to combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add beer and use a wooden spoon to combine.
  • Coat the inside of a 9x5" loaf pan with half the melted butter (2 Tablespoons). Add batter to pan, then pour over the remaining melted butter.

  • Let it cool completely before you slice so it doesn't fall apart.
