Beer Bread

Ahhh, Sundays in autumn. Football season is in full swing. I love football. LOVE football. My beloved Green Bay Packers play tomorrow night against the Bears and I can’t wait to watch. But for all of you watching the NFL today, here’s a perfect and ridiculously easy treat to make. Beer bread would be a great side dish for chili! I found that it’s best served right out of the oven — as it becomes a little less magical the day after it’s made.

Print Recipe

3 cups self-rising flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
12 oz beer (I used Blue Moon — but be aware that the flavor of your bread will be impacted by the beer you choose)
2 Tablespoons melted butter

1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
2. Butter an 8×4 inch loaf pan and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and beer; mix well. The mixture will be sticky. Pour into the loaf pan and bake for about 55 minutes.
3. At the last three minutes of baking, remove from oven and brush the top of the loaf with the melted butter. Return to the oven for the final three minutes of baking.

    I used Blue Moon the first time I made this too, and I did not love the fruitiness that resulted. I was expecting a much different flavor. The second time I made it, just the other day, I used Corona, and it had much more the flavor I was looking for. I still want to try it with a stout, I think that would be best of all. The great thing is how stupidly easy this recipe is.ReplyCancel

    Oooh I love that you can change the flavor of the bread by changing the beer you use. It looks delicious!ReplyCancel

    Amber — I know what you mean… with the fruity taste! Blue Moon is the only beer I ever drink, so it’s all I had in my fridge. Next time I want to try it with Fat Tire.

    Sues — Make this bread! It’s SO absurdly easy – ha! And delicious.ReplyCancel

    I make this same recipe. But with 3 tbs sugar and lots more butter on top. I am trying to make this into a cake recipe, because the bread is tender and moist. Have you ever tried a beer cake? Maybe with lemon flavor and a glaze on top instead of butter?ReplyCancel

    I haven’t tried making (or eating) a beer cake — sounds interesting though. Thanks for the comment :)ReplyCancel

    If you don’t want to use beer you can also use any carbonated soda! Root beer bread, mountain dew bread, orange name it you can make it! :)ReplyCancel
