    Karen67's Note:

    I first had this recipe about 25 years ago the first time my older sister had a family dinner at her home when she was just out of college. I've tried another beer bread from this site, but I like this one better. It even got great reviews from my picky friend that doesn't like most beer breads. It also makes the most amazing grilled cheese sandwiches..just slice it thin after it's completely cooled. Based on results from a reviewer, I suggest you use a glass loaf pan or reduce the cooking time slightly if using metal.

      NOTE: Original recipe did not include the sesame seeds on the bottom of the loaf, but I like them. The original recipe also stated that sesame seeds could be used instead of poppy seeds mixed into the loaf & on top (eliminating the poppy seeds completely from the recipe).

      Easy, easy, easy! This came together so quick and such great flavor. The bread itself is wonderful with a sweet flavor from the sugar that blends so perfectly with the nutty flavor from the sesame seeds. DH was very happy with this one. Did I mention how easy it was to make? I used Coors lite for the beer and would love to try this with an ale, like Bass or Killians.
