Hearty Beer Bread

Beer bread recipes are a must in our house during the fall and winter months. It's a delicious, hearty bread that is perfect for dunking in soups and stews. With only six ingredients, this beer bread comes together in a matter of minutes.

Ingredients
  • 3 cups flour (all purpose or a mix of white and whole wheat)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bottle room temperature beer (see notes section)
  • 3 tablespoons (to 4) melted unsalted butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
     
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
     
  3. Add the beer and stir for about 20 stokes, just until the flour is incorporated. (Try and not over-stir the batter.)
     
  4. Pour into your prepared pan and drizzle with the melted butter.
     
  5. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes on a cooling rack before removing it from the pan.
     
Notes

Regarding ingredients: Non-alcoholic beer works fine too, though I would recommend a darker, amber non-alcoholic beer if you can find it.

I've played with making my own beer bread before, with differing results. Sometimes it's quite good, but I've had some failures as well. I like using a dark beer for this (I like dark beers generally) though I've seen a few recipes that suggested using an IPA. I'm normally not a great fan of IPAs since they have too much of a grapefruit taste for me. Still, I'm tempted to try an IPA with this recipe just to see how it turns out.

I didn't know you have to use baking powder or soda with this recepie but thanks to previous comment I will not be using the powder.However , I remember during communist the beer bread was sold at the shops for special table addition and was the best thing that I would enjoy the most. When it was warm was just heavenly.

it's a tablespoon of baking SODA not POWDER! I wondered why my bread turned out gross, a little googling, and bread with beer doesn't need powder, it needs soda!

My family loves warm beer bread especially with a hearty soup or stew. It is really good cut thick and toasted, too. Instead of brown sugar I use honey to sweeten the mixture.

This one sounds real good ( I have only made a simple one with self-rising flour) It is a can of beer and 2 cups self-rising flour- mix and pour into greased and floured loaf pan-bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes (til a toothpick comes out of center clean). This was great one to toast thick slices and serve with butter and jam -it was a hit at our house - sort of a 'malty' taste ! Too easy to believe !
