Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Measure 3 cups self-rising flour and 3/4 cup sugar into a mixing bowl and add beer. Mix with bread attachment on mixer, or mix by hand with a wooden spoon. If batter is too runny (it should be slightly wet), add flour until it pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Spray a bread pan with cooking spray and sprinkle with 1-2 additional teaspoons of sugar to coat bottom and sides of pan, if desired. Pour batter into prepared pan and cover with a dish towel. Let dough rise for 20 minutes. Melt 1 stick unsalted butter in microwave safe dish.
Bake bread for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully pour melted butter on top of loaf, allowing it to run down around inside edge of pan. Return pan to oven for an additional 20 minutes. Test for doneness with knife or cake tester. Remove from oven and let loaf sit in pan 10-12 minutes, then turn out onto a cutting board.
Originally, I kept trying to make this with regular flour and adding baking powder. It tasted OK, but it would never rise properly. Once I switched to self-rising flour (which I keep in the freezer just for this recipe), it now comes out perfect. I think it has something to do with the reaction between the mix already in the flour and the yeast in the beer. I have had the dough be very thick (almost like you could knead it), but I put it in the pan, let it rise and it still came out perfect!
