I use this recipe ALL the time. <br/>Not only is it one of the easiest to remember, it never fails to be a number one hit everywhere I pull this rabbit out of a hat. <br/>I went to make it a few days back, only to discover that I was out of Baking Powder. <br/>So I substituted 2.25 tsp of Baking Soda with just under three Tbls of cider vinegar. <br/>WOW! <br/>What a great mistake that was.<br/>The bread had crust for days, a higher rise, and a textbook interior. <br/>And... it finished baking about seven minutes ahead of schedule.<br/>I'm trying it again right now. <br/>Let's see if it was a fluke, or a worthy variation on this already fantastic theme.<br/>Thanks for the recipe.

I made this for my boyfriend's family christmas and everyone ate it up! It was so good! After I baked it for an hour there was still a lot of melted butter in the pan so i poured it back over top and broiled the bread for another 5 minutes or so. It defiantley soaked up more of the butter, the rest i discarded. Definatley a keeper! Try with cinnamon butter like the Texas Roadhouse copycat.

This bread is delicious! I used home-brewed kombucha instead of beer, and added a packet of yeast to be sure it rose well. The entire loaf was devoured at dinner. Will definitely make again!!

Great go-to recipe. Thanks for the tips about sifting - I spooned the flour into the measuring cup, and didn't experience and issues with the end texture.

Simple, quick & easiest bread recipe ever! I made it this morning & added Parmesan, chilli flakes & garlic powder for an extra touch. It was ready by lunch. Was flavorful & soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside. My loaf was cooked within 45mins (evenly browned) though I left it to sit in the loaf tin for another 15mins just in case. Didn't need to use the beer at room temperature but made sure I sifted the flour & other dry ingredients. Thanks for posting this life saver!

Me and my Grandma just made this today, and it was AWESOME! We used Cherry Wheat beer, but didn't add any sugar though, and it still turned out really good. I am so looking forward to Sunday so we can experiment with this recipe more! Might try it with putting in some cheese, garlic, or anything else that might make it turn out good! Love this recipe!!

Very easy and so good. My daughter lives with me and whenever I make this I have to act quickly to get a piece as she gobbles it all up in no time.

Various seasonal beers give it a great taste. Leinekugel Vanilla Porter is good choice when available in the winter. As are various pumpkin beers that are available in the fall. Pyramid Apricot Ale is also a good choice, which is available year round.
