This is one of my favorite recipes. It's simple fast and can taste different each time you make it depending on the beer you use. In fall I like using some of the pumpkin and pumpkin spice beers.
This recipe original came from a very odd source: Dragonlance's More Leaves from the Inn of the Last Home by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman/
3 Cups of flour
3 tbs sugar
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
12oz of beer or ale
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350F. Shift dry ingredients. (If you use self-rising flour you can leave out the salt and baking powder). Shake up the beer or ale so it's nice and fizzy and pour it into dry ingredients. Warning failure to shake beer will result in tasty rocks. Stir mixture thoroughly.
Spoon batter into greased bread pan.
Bake 45-50 minutes. Let bread cool for 15 minutes before turning out of the pan.
