bake: Beer Bread

I have a severe weakness for bread!


I read somewhere that the average person consumes 53lbs of bread a year – “GREAT SCOTT” – if that’s the case, then my average consumption has to be at least double that!  Wow, really Melissa, 106lbs of bread – WOWZERS, maybe I should cut back – HA!

So here’s where you can’t go wrong…it’s Beer Bread, like the title says.  That means it is bread with BEER in it, folks!  Can it get any better than that?  I think NOT!  (If you are unsure that this is a victorious combo, go ask your hubs; I think he will agree with me ;)

#2 reason that this is a beautiful combo in bread making.  IT’S SO EASY.  I mean so easy, your cat could do it!  I mean cats can pee in a toilet & flush said toilet, like in the movies – so why couldn’t they bake bread, too, no?

Reason #35…yes, I jumped ahead ;)  The bread is yummy sweet!  I love me some sweet bread!  I’m a big fan of Challah bread – I could eat a loaf in one sitting of that yumminess – holla!

Reason #127…stay with me here.  There is NO YEAST involved (unless you count the beer)– hallelujah!  See, me & the little yeast packets, yeah, well, we don’t get along.


  • 3 cups of self-rising flour (I use Gold Medal)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 12oz can of beer (I usually use Natty Light) (experiment with different beers for different flavors!)
  • 2 TBS melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Spray a bread loaf pan with non-stick baking spray & set aside.
  3. Combine the flour, sugar, & beer in large bowl & mix well; The mixture will be very sticky.
  4. Pour mixture into the sprayed loaf pan & bake for 52 minutes.
  5. After the 52 minutes, remove pan from oven
  6. Using a pastry brush, spread butter on loaf to create a glaze.
  7. Place back in the oven for 3 more minutes to set glaze.
  8. Remove from oven & let sit for 5 minutes.
  9. Slice & enjoy!

Serves: 4-6
