Beer Bread

“There are a few recipes for beer bread out there, but none as simple (and tasty!) as this one. You can even mix it in the baking pan for easy cleanup. This is sensational when served with soups or just as a snack, but don't expect it to be around very long when your family gets a taste of it!”

Beer Bread

Serves - 6-8 Prep Time – 5 Minutes Cook Time – 1Hour 3 Minutes


  • 3 cups flour, sifted.

  • 3 teaspoons 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, (whatever you have on hand or your favorite works great)

  • 1/2 cup melted butter (1/4 cup will do just fine)


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Mix dry ingredients and beer.

Pour into a greased loaf pan, pour melted butter over mixture.

Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes.

Recipe Notes:

This recipe makes a very hearty bread with a crunchy, buttery crust. If you prefer a softer crust (like a traditional bread) mix the butter into the batter instead of pouring it over the top.

Add a cup of shredded cheese and two teaspoons of garlic powder for cheddar biscuit style bread, or 2 cups of fresh blueberries, an additional 3/4 cup of sugar, (using 1/4 cup to sprinkle over top of melted butter) and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract for a scone style loaf bread.

"This delicious loaf of bread is so easy to make and makes a great addition to any meal. Serve warm with a pat of butter, or slice and spread your favorite jam for breakfast. Either way, you are going to love it!"
