  • 345 grams plain flour
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon baking powder level
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 - 4 tablespoons sugar or up to ½ cup if you like your bread sweet
  • 30 grams salted butter melted and cooled
  • 345 ml light flavoured beer at room temperature (must not be flat)
  • 30 grams extra melted butter for top of bread


Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F) and lightly grease and flour a 22 cm x 12 cm (9 inch x 5 inch) loaf pan.

  • Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large mixing bowl.
  • Pour in 30 grams of cooled melted butter and the beer, use a wooden spoon to stir about 20 times until just combined.
  • Spoon the batter into the loaf pan. Use the back of a spoon to smooth the top.
  • Drizzle the remaining butter over the top of the bread.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 40 – 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the top of the bread comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven. Let the bread stand in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely before cutting.
  • Store in and airtight container at room temperature.
