yields one loaf

3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons honey
1 egg
12 ounces of your favorite beer
3 pieces thick-cut bacon, diced
1/2 cup (4 ounces) grated sharp white cheddar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Use a vegetable cooking spray to thoroughly grease a 9x12 loaf pan. Cook the bacon in a frying pan over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, then drain fat. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Lightly beat egg with honey, then pour it onto flour mixture and mix with a wooden spoon. Add beer and mix into the batter, then add bacon and cheddar and fold into batter. Spread batter evenly into the pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the bread comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack. Cool another 10 minutes before cutting.
