Recipe Roots: Cathie Huber has been finding her passion in the kitchen all her life. She was taught the basics from her mother, but her fascination with making delicious creations developed when she was a teenager. Cathie would clip recipes from magazines and make her family taste-test them (something her father didn’t always love). She is an avid cook but has found baking to be her favorite. Cathie’s nickname is “Pie Lady” for a reason!
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. honey
1 can beer (12 oz. size)
2 Tbsp. (or less) unsalted butter, melted
9” x 5” x 3” loaf pan
Total time: 1 hour
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Grease a 9″x 5″x 3″ loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- Microwave the honey for 5 to 10 seconds, enough to make the stirring easier for the next step.
- Using a wooden spoon, stir the beer and honey into the dry ingredients until mixed.
- Spoon the batter into the pan, and drizzle the butter (melted) on top of the batter.
- Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a toothpick/knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
- Cool and serve. Enjoy!
Thank you, Cathie, for this recipe!
