I'm posting this recipe here so that I don't lose it! I haven't tried it but it seems worth trying. Can't get much easier. With a good stout or dark beer this could be extremely yummy. Originally from the kitchen of Rosemary Champion.

This bread has great flavor when you use a dark beer. I used Bass Ale. I followed the directions exactly, baking the batter right away. However, it didn't rise one iota, creating a dense, chewy loaf, and wasn't too bad. I'll bet this batter needs to sit awhile to let the beer and sugar do it's thing and create a little bubbly rise. Maybe you could even cheat a little and add some baking powder. I'm not a bread whiz, so these are just suggestions.
