Beer Bread




This beer bread comes together quickly with no kneading required. The beer gives it a slight sweetness and a great flavor.

Beer Bread
Makes 6-8 Servings

  • 3 cups flour (sifted)
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (12 ounce) can beer
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (1/4 cup will work, but I use 1/2 cup)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a loaf pan or 8" square pan.
  
2. Mix dry ingredients first, combining them thoroughly before adding beer. (A whisk works great for this part). Add beer, then stir with a spoon until combined.
  
3. Add a small amount of melted butter to bottom of pan. Pour batter into loaf pan.
  
4. Pour melted butter over mixture.
  
5. Bake 1 hour for a loaf pan, if you use a 8" square pan check it around 45 min. and every 5 min then on until done. Remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes. (Important, be sure to put an extra pan or some foil beneath your bread as the butter might overflow)

Recipe from... not sure! I have to track it down.

  2. This bread turned out wonderfully! I was on a mission to re-create a beer bread that is served at luncheon meetings I frequent. I found several very similar recipes on Pinterest, but I liked your blog best. I'm sharing your recipe on my blog and linking to your blog - just wanted to let you know :) Thank you!

  4. Made this recipe last night for some friends that came over for dinner. They loved it, and so did I. Instead of regular butter I used honey butter. I t came out very crunchy on top and moist in the middle. Will be making this again very soon. Thinking of adding some garlic and maybe parmesan or another type of cheese to it.

  5. I made this to go with our spaghetti tonight and it was so good. I used a hard cider and it really brought out the apple flavor. Next time I'll try adding a little cheddar to it.
