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.
Regarding ingredients: Non-alcoholic beer works fine too, though I would recommend a darker, amber non-alcoholic beer if you can find it.
Cooking Time45 min
- 3 cups flour (all purpose or a mix of white and whole wheat)
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
