Heat it Up {Recipe: Beer Bread}

“>Pin It

You’ll have to excuse the inappropriateness of this post. I fully understand your position.. it’s 100 zillion degrees outside and the last thing you want to be tempted with is something that requires you to turn on your oven.

Baking. In the heat of the summer. Who does that?

I do!

And you should too.

Here’s an oldie but goodie (blogged before on Dine & Dish) recipe to get you in the mood…classic Beer Bread. Not the kind you mix up from a box, but just as simple.

Turn on your oven and heat things up even more. It’s so worth it. I promise!

Buttery Beer Bread

Buttery Beer Bread

Beer bread with a thick, buttery crust and tender inside. Quick, easy and so delicious!

  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt

  1. Yes, Ma’am!

  2. That bread looks amazeballs! I am a sucker for bread anyway, but yummy!!

  3. This beer bread is truly a beauty. Yes, for bread (and probably macarons too), I don’t mind turning on the oven in the summer. :) Can’t wait to try this.

      I almost wish I hadn’t seen this! I’m trying NOT to indulge and it’s going to be hard to get this off my mind!!!

  4. Well it certainly isn’t a bazillion degrees here so I’m all for baking bread at the moment. It’s so grey and rainy here that I can’t think of anything more comforting.

  5. Oh my, it’s been ages since I’ve made beer bread!

  6. That IS simple! And it looks delicious!

  7. I LOVE beer bread! One of my all-time favorites, especially since it’s so easy to whip up a batch. Your photo looks lovely! :)

  8. I love beer bread! This is my kind of recipe. Great photo!

  9. Um, yes. Yes x a billion. Yes.

  10. Beer bread is a favorite in our house. Unfortunately I can at the whole loaf myself. Love it!

  11. Ha! Not inappropriate at all. We just turned on our air last night– couldn’t stand it anymore. Though you’d probably laugh at us since it’s only 90ish… Can we top this with more butter? :)

  12. Not inappropriate at all! I bake all summer. In Georgia heat. That’s what air conditioning is for, right?

  13. That looks so good…totally worth turning on the oven for. My mom regularly made beer bread when I was a kid, but I don’t make it all that often and when I do, it’s usually to serve with soup. I think I could manage beer bread in this heat but probably not soup.

  14. This bread looks amazing!! The crust is perfection :)

  15. Holy cow, that bread looks good!! And sounds easy to make! I’ve pinned and printed – going to make it tomorrow.

  16. Looks amazing, Kristen!! I’m going to definitely make this soon!!

  17. I’m firing up the oven right now. Gonna try this without gluten, just realized I miss beer bread!

  18. Oh I’m making this immediately. Beer in bread is the best thing ever.

  19. I’d make this no matter what temperature it was!

  20. Oh hey, guess who’s baking this today…yes, in the heat of the summer!!!! Thanks!
