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!

    Gosh i haven’t made beer bread in ages. This is definitely enough to entice me, especially since I’ve been making a lot of jam lately.

    You’re right – some things are worth firing up the oven for – even on these crazy hot days! And I have to say this Beer Bread looks like the thing to do. Can’t wait to give it a try!

    I know this post is old news by now, but I made your beer bread last night, and it was delicious! And so easy. It was perfect with soup. I just ordered some beer bread mix from a home party I went to. I wanted to make homemade to see how it compares. I have a feeling we’ll be giving the mix away. :)

    ugh, wish I’d read about reducing the butter sooner – it spilled over the bread pan and has made a quite a stinky mess, I hope it still tastes ok.

    I add the butter to the mix to give the bread a softer crust. I also sift all the dry ingredients together three times before I add the beer and the butter. LOVED this recipe! Very nice crumb to the bread. Thanks!
