Beer Bread Recipe


This recipe is pretty easy, and it's wicked good! I don't really like the taste of beer, but I like this bread. The beer taste is pretty subtle. I think that it's best to use a lighter-colored beer for this recipe. You can also use a clear soda, like Sprite or ginger ale. If you use soda instead of beer, the bread tastes sweeter.

Beer bread is a great basic bread recipe. We always add extras to it. Diced guyere cheese, chopped jalapenos, green onions, crispy bacon, fresh corn...we never make it the same way twice. I always add the extra ingredients to the dry ingredients and toss them well. It's helps to keep them suspended in the bread.

Thank you for linking this up at Katie's Cucina!

Anon, that's a great tip about how to mix the ingredients.

Sarah: we use this recipe to get out of buying more TS beer bread, the cost really adds up after a while! I'll try to check out your link party soon.

Made this last night to go with our chili dinner. It was very good. We used to buy the TS mix too but this would certainly be MUCH cheaper. My husband is excited that we can make this more often now! Thank you!!

This bread is great as an accompaniment to chili and soups.

One note: Maybe I'm lazy, but I just use self-rising flour, sugar and the beer, and I always let the beer come to room temperature first. I also like to let mine sit for twenty or so minutes after putting in the pan which makes the bread a little less dense.
