Easy Beer Bread

Easy Beer Bread

Introduction

You will be hard pressed to find an easier recipe for bread than this one!!! Pretty much any beer will work in this recipe, though i've had fun with beers like Bell's Cherry Stout and Big Sky Brewing's Moose Drool...so don't be afraid to throw in a bottle of your favorite intriguing beer! Just keep in mind, the same rule applies to cooking with beer as applies to cooking with wine: if you wouldn't drink it, don't cook with it!

Ingredients

    3 c. flour (I usually use a mix of whole rye and whole wheat flour, but use whatever you prefer**)
    1-1/2 T. baking powder
    1-1/2 tsp. salt
    3 T. sugar
    12 oz. beer

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 deg F. Grease loaf pan.

Mix dry ingredients well; add beer. Stir till well mixed, but don't OVER-mix the dough. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour. Let cool slightly on rack before cutting.

**If you use conventional white flour, decrease baking powder to about 1 T.

Number of Servings: 16

  • Incredible!

    I couldn't get 16 slices either and the crust was hard but that's good :) The firs loaf I did with Honey Weiss and it sliced nicely, the second one with sunset wheat was more crumbly. You can tell the subtle hints of the beer! Brought it to a soup cook off...MAJOR HIT! - 1/9/10

  • Read the reviews first and was prepared for hard crust and crumbles. Crust did come out hard and it crumbles when I slice (not sure how many but prob not 16 slices) on edges but center is moist. Used Shocktop Raspberry beer - nice flavor. Will try again because it was so easy. - 2/4/12

  • It turned out ok. I think if I had used 2.5 cups of flour it would have turned our much better. - 8/1/10

  • My crust turned out very hard and it kind of crumbled when I cut it. I couldn't cut it into 16 slices, which is the serving size. Tastes good but I don't think I'll make it again. - 10/21/09

  • Very Easy! I used a homemade Ale and I brushed the top with a little butter before going into the oven and it came out great! - 7/13/09
