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

  2. In a medium bowl and using a wire whisk, sift together all dry ingredients.
  3. Add beer and stir with a wooden spoon until well incorporated.
  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.

    Yum! I’d been planning on making sandwich bread, but I may have to try this first! I’ve never made beer bread before!

    When I first moved to Denver I was soon introduced to Coors Beer Bread; you know back in the day when Coors didn’t go east of the Mississippi River and it was sort of a magical beer in the minds of many?

    Same recipe, same deliciousness and I’ve even strayed from the Coors part; it’s so completely different with a dark beer. Good different!

    You are my hero!! My mom used to make the best beer bread ever and she can’t find her recipe. I am going to try this one and see how close it is. I remember eating my mom’s beer bread warm with butter….HEAVEN!!

    What size loaf pan did you use? Looks delish..oh.and a question. We don’t drink beer here, so a friend provided me with a bottle about ? ago. Will bottled beer ever go bad ?

      Great question, Denise! Sorry about missing that info.
      I used a 1.5QT 8.5×4.5×2.5 inch glass baking pan.

      I’m not sure if beer will go bad or not. I think it it is stored properly (in the fridge or out of direct sunlight) it should be fine but I honestly am not sure. I’m thinking for a recipe like this, versus drinking it, it should be fine, but that’s just my guess :)

    I JUST made beer bread last night! I haven’t tried it yet, but I used pumpkin beer and supplemented it with pumpkin pie spices and cinnamon sugar on top :)

    I wanna bake this just for the smell alone! I’ve used your recipe before. It’s so easy and makes the house smell so wonderful!

      My mom has used soda before simply because she didn’t have any beer in the house and it works just as well, the taste is a little different but it works!
