Easy Beer Bread

lunch on the beach: beer bread, potato salad and steak sandwich
I remember when I was in kindergarten I used to go to a friends house after school, and her mum would often have fresh beer bread. I have been thinking about it for ages and finally decided to make it while I was in Australia. I am not sure why I didn't try to make it sooner, it so easy to make. You can experiment with different kinds of beer,  herbs and cheese to change the flavour. I am going to try to make a few more combinations in the coming weeks, maybe adding rosemary, feta and caramelised onions. Check back for more recipes soon.

Beer bread 
180°C (375°F) 
3 cups self raising flour (or 3 cups regular flour and 1 Tablespoon baking powder)
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon lemon pepper
1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
330ml bottle of beer
2 Tablespoons butter

1. Heat oven to 180°C.
2. In bowl mix flour, sugar, salt, cheese, lemon pepper and chilli flakes.
3. Slowly pour bottle of beer into mixture, and mix until just incorporated.
4. Spread batter in greased 20cm (8inch) loaf pan.
5. Melt butter and pour over batter.
6. Bake in oven for approximately 45 minutes or until skewer comes out clean. (loaf should be golden colour)
