I didn't understand why some people didn't like this very much. I've made it a million times and we always love it. It's quick and easy and a great accompaniment to soup or stew. Then the last time I made it I actually had self-rising flour on hand (usually I make my own substitute). It was no where near as good when made with self-rising flour. I highly recommend using this substitue: 3 cups all purpose flour, 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt. I know it seems like a lot of baking powder, but if you like a buttery slightly salty bread you'll love it. I also always use butter on top, not margarine as the recipe states. Finally, if you have it on hand, dark beer makes this bread even better.



The difference between this beer bread and the Beer Bread I, is the margarine/butter poured on top before baking. And it makes all the difference in the world. This bread is much better and has a much bettter crumb to it. Sometimes I add Italian herbs and garlic powder. If you have problems with the margarine/butter overflowing into your oven just make a slit down the center of the bread, before pouring it on. It helps control the direction of the melted margarine/butter and helps for more even distribution too.



I really liked this recipe. After buying a box of Beer Bread from Tastefully Simple for $4.00 and making it, I knew I had to find a recipe to make this type of bread and lo and behold I found it here. This bread is so good and moist. I would love to experiment with different types of beer. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
