Easy Beer Bread for St Patrick's Day

You don't need a bread machine for this simple recipe. I'm thinking about adding some green food coloring to swirl around in the bread dough for St. Paddy's. Have a fun Saint Patrick's Day!!!

Easy Beer Bread

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
12 ounces beer
1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Make sure the oven rack is in the lower-middle position. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the beer and stir til just combined.  Turn dough onto floured cutting board. Knead into a ball. Place the bread dough ball on a baking sheet and cut a large X into the dough. Brush the loaf with the egg wash. Bake until golden brown-about 45 minutes. Serves 8.
