Beer Bread is a delicious 4 ingredient batter bread that has a crunch buttery crust.
I found this recipe in the cookbook pictured below. I laughed out loud when I saw what the picture says, it’s so true though! This beer bread does not taste like beer to me at all. It reminded me of the yeasty buttermilk bread my mom made when I was growing up. If you used a stout or a dark beer, you’d probably get more of beer taste in the bread. I used a light beer in this.
This bread is really addicting and the easiest homemade bread I’ve ever made. The crust is super crunchy, and so good. My husband and I fought over the end pieces!
I have plans to make this on Easter instead of dinner rolls, that’s how good it is! I hope you give this easy recipe a try.
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 12 oz. beer (I use bud light)
- 1/2 cup salted butter (divided)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a standard sized loaf pan with non-stick spray.
- In a large bowl add the self-rising flour, sugar and beer. Stir until combined. Pour into the loaf pan. Melt half of the butter in the microwave or stove top and pour over batter evenly.
- Place the loaf pan on the center of the rack and bake for 1 hour or until golden brown and the center comes out clean when a toothpick is inserted in the center of the loaf.
- Melt the remaining butter and pour over the while hot and still in the pan. Remove from pan and let cool for 20 minutes before cutting and serving.
