Beer Bread

Beer Bread

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

Print Friendly Recipe

  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 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-f degrees. Prepare a bread 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. Pour melted butter over mixture. Be sure to put an extra pan or some foil beneath your bread as the butter might overflow.
  4. Bake 1 hour for a bread 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.

  1. This is in the oven as I type... :) looks like its gonna be awesome!!! Will comment again when it's done.

  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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Moist Cinnamon Streusel Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Moist and so flavorful, this Pumpkin Coffee Cake can be enjoyed year round and is particularly good with a cup of coffee.

A light glaze decorates the top of the coffee cake, along with a sprinkling of pecans.


Cheeseburger Meatloaf (Keto/Low Carb)

Would you like to hear what I discovered yesterday? Well, I realized I had accidentally turned off comments on the blog for the past two months. Yikes!

About two months ago I was getting hit with a spam comment barrage so I had turned off comments for the evening, fully planning on turning them back on the next day. Whoops! Apparently I totally forgot. My apologies.

Onto the meatloaf. You get a pretty substantial serving here at only two carbs, leaving you lots of room for vegetables on the side to make up the majority of the carb count in your meal.

Of course, it doesn't have the exact texture of a traditional meatloaf, but I found it to be a great substitute. It is not tough and the diced onion lends some added texture, flavor and moisture. I would recommend going for a fresh onion for this as opposed to onion powder for this reason.

I had this with a sugar free ketchup. Tasty and even the kids loved it, onions and all. Enjoy!

Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.
