Beer Bread

I am not a fan of beer…nothing about it do I like;) HOWEVER, use it in a loaf of  bread and I am sold!  I thought I would share the beer bread recipe I have been making for over a year now. Usually the crust isn’t my favorite part of bread, but with all the butter involved this crust is hands down the best part!



  • 3 cups of all purpose flour (I use better for bread flour), sifted
  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 (12 oz) bottle or can of beer (I use honey brown beer for the honey flavor)
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter (can use 1/4 cup if you prefer)


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Sift the flour.
  3. Mix all of the dry ingredients together.
  4. Pour in the beer and mix well.
  5. Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan.
  6. Melt the butter and then pour on top of the batter in the loaf pan.
  7. Bake 50 minutes to 1 hour.

*I always put a cookie sheet under the loaf pan, just in case the butter spills over the sides while it cooks. I remove the cookie sheet halfway through cooking once I know the butter isn’t going to spill. If the butter spills into the bottom of the oven, it creates a not so fun burning smell!

Hope you enjoy this easy beer bread recipe!
