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
Beer bread with a thick, buttery crust and tender inside. Quick, easy and so delicious!
  • 3 cups flour, sifted (not packed)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 12 ounce can or bottle of beer
  • 1 stick butter, melted

  4. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and pour beer bread batter into pan.
  5. Pour melted butter over the top of the beer bread batter.
  6. Bake for 1 hour.

    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!!!

    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.

    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? :)

    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.
