Beer Bread

3 cups Quick Mix (or store-bought baking mix)*
12 ounces beer (any kind–bread flavor will vary depending on beer used)

*You can make this recipe from scratch without a baking mix two ways.

1) Use 3 cups self-rising flour in place of the baking mix and add 1 tablespoon of sugar, or

2) Use 3 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt in place of the baking mix.

Note: Sweet or not so sweet? You choose. For plain beer bread, I use the baking mix without any added sugar. If you prefer a sweeter plain beer bread, add sugar (up to 1/3 cup) to the 3 cups of baking mix, and you can also increase the sugar in the scratch method.

Blink, and you’ll miss the directions because they’re so fast!

Place 3 cups of baking mix (or your scratch ingredients) in a bowl.

Pour in the beer. (It doesn’t matter if it’s cold or room temperature. It doesn’t matter what kind of beer you use. You can use dark beer. You can even use “lite” beer. You can use whatever kind of beer you like.)

Stir just enough to moisten the mixture then spoon it into a greased loaf pan

You’re done!

Pop it in the oven at 350-degrees for one hour. If you like, in the last 10 minutes of baking, take it out and drizzle a little melted butter on top then stick it back in the oven to finish baking. If you’re making a sweet beer bread, sprinkle a little sugar on top of the butter. If you want to go savory, sprinkle some herbs or cheese on top.

Going to make this tomorrow with all the other Super Bowl goodies. We don't drink beer, but know someone will bring some tomorrow. Just hope I can get the beer without losing my life.LOL

Have you made this before, or is today the test drive? If it's a first, let us know how you like it.


Sometimes, the only right answer is silence...which in and of itself speaks a thousand words.

I made 2. One loaf I used Bud Lite and made it sweet by adding the sugar. I thought the beer would be lite enough that I could make it sweet. I put melted butter on top after it finished baking.

Loaf #2 I made with Samuel Adams. I left the sugar out and just made it plain. 10 minutes before it finished baking I took it out of the oven and put melted butter and Italian seasoning on it and finished baking it.

I thought they both turned out very good. Nothing left of either loaf.

Loaf #1 we ate with cream cheese on it. Loaf #2 we ate with the Gumbo that DH made.

Yea!!! Saints!!!!!

Will make again. May try different beers. But for today this is the only beer that showed up at our house. Have to talk our friends into drinking other beers. LOL
