Easy Beer Bread Recipe

I love baking, but I’m definitely not a ‘stand around kneading dough’ kind of girl. My technique in the kitchen is get in, get out, and enjoy the tasty treats. This recipe for Beer Bread fits that description perfectly. It is delicious, so much so that I’m often taken aback after trying a slice while it is still warm from the oven. It is a great addition to your dinner, or with a pat of butter as an afternoon snack.

Beer Bread

Yield: Beer Bread


3 cups flour (sifted - See direction step number 2 below)
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 and a bowl work great for this part, I don't sift). Add beer, then stir with a spoon until combined.

3. Spray a loaf pan with baking spray. 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.)
