I’ve been making beer bread for years and I’m surprised I haven’t shared it on my blog yet! It is the simplest bread to make and almost impossible to mess up. The beer provides the yeast, so you don’t even have to worry about killing the yeast! This bread has a beautiful and crunchy golden top which makes it our favorite. Serve it up with a soup or a chili to dip it into!
There are tons of variations of beer bread out there. I’ve tried many- with cheese, herbs, with wheat flour and oats…but I can tell you that for once, the original is our favorite.
-3 Cups All-Purpose Flour (sifted)*
-3 teaspoons Baking Powder
-1 teaspoon Salt
-1/4 Cup Sugar
-1/4 Cup Melted Butter
-1 Can or Bottle of Beer (12 ounces)
*Please be sure to measure your flour by scooping it into the measuring cup and leveling off. Otherwise, if you pack the flour in my scooping it up with the measuring cup, you will end up with some pretty dry bread.
Preheat oven to 375F. Place flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl. Mix together.
