Beer Bread

I've been intrigued with the idea of beer bread for awhile, since it doesn't require yeast and I have no patience for the kneading and rising required to make bread with yeast, so I decided to give it a try on Saturday night. I thought this bread was just okay. It was very dense and a sort of strange after taste. Joe didn't like it at all and we ended up throwing most of it away. But I'm posting the recipe anyway - maybe you can think of some improvements for it!

Beer Bread

2 cups AP flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp sugar
pinch salt
1 tbsp baking soda
1 (341 ml) bottle of beer (I used Miller Lite)
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a loaf pan. Mix AP flour, whole wheat flour, salt and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Stir in beer, cheese and mustard until a batter forms (it will be a thick batter). Turn into loaf pan and bake 40-45 minutes until golden brown and firm to the touch.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
