Bread from Beer…start to finish 50 minutes!












This recipe was given to me by a friend who got it from a local restaurateur. It is also all over the internet but if you have not tried it, give it a go. You will have hot, delicious bread on the table in less than one hour! If there is any left over, it is also lovely toasted the next day. The yeast in the beer in combination with the baking powder causes the bread to raise. The bread has a dense texture with a slightly sweet taste. I have played around with different flour combinations which all tasted great. Once you make this bread recipe, you will be hooked!


makes 1 loaf

preheat oven 375*F

3 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

3 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

Mix dry ingedients together in a large mixing bowl. Pour one 12 ounce bottle of beer [your choice] over the top and stir until just combined. The batter will be lumpy!

Place batter in 9 x 5 x 3 loaf pan

Pour 1/4 cup melted butter over the top of the bread dough.

Bake for 45 minutes.

Allow to cool for 1/2 hour before slicing…

Thanks for reading.

    Never have tried to make bread before, this looks right up my alley…my only question and this may sound dumb (novice baker to say the least) but do you grease the loaf pan first?

    • Yes and I should have mentioned that.

      Thanks Jody!

    YEA! now that is more my style 🙂 making that tonight

  • I love making beer bread! I buy self rising flour so I can skip adding the extra ingredients- instead it’s just butter, self rising flour, sugar and beer!

    • brilliant! thanks for the tip.

    I made this last week. You gave me the recipe a long time ago. It was so good. The kids ate it all up.

    • I can eat a whole loaf myself! I’m glad they liked it.
