Easy Homemade Beer Bread
No need for a mix. Enjoy this easy and delicious homemade beer bread anytime with just 4 simple ingredients.
My sister shared this recipe with me years and years ago. You may have seen it on the blog with a terrible little photo circa 2012. I have been meaning to update this post for sometime and realized recently that I already have great beer bread photos in other posts... as in this strawberry chia seed jam post and this beer bread made with soda post. So I went the lazy route or let's call it the more efficient, best use of time route and repurposed these photos to show off this delicious beer bread.
This is the easiest bread you'll ever make. It is one of my go-to recipes when I want something to go with soup or a casserole or almost any entree. Our family loves it. We enjoy it sliced fresh or toasted with butter. For a special treat, cube it and serve it with dill or spinach dip. I love to take it to pot-lucks cubed with dip. It is always a hit. And if you're not a fan of beer, simply substitute a can of soda for the beer. But don't worry, it doesn't taste like beer or soda. It is buttery, slightly sweet and simply delicious.
1 12 oz. can of beer or soda
3 Cups self-rising flour (or use my sister-in-law's recipe for self-rising flour below)
6 Tbsp. sugar or coconut sugar
3/4 stick butter, melted
1. Mix together flour, sugar, and beer.
2. Bake in greased loaf pan for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
3. Remove from heat, pour melted butter over the top.
4. Return to oven and bake for 15 minutes more.
Recipe for Self-Rising Flour substitute:
3 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Combine all ingredients and use in place of self rising flour.

I don't have self-rising flour on hand, so I looked up a short cut to avoid a trip to the store. I'll let you know how it turns out.

It worked! The bread was delicious with the substitute recipe I used above. It was so easy that I may have to start making it every week! I do plan to try the self-rising flour though to see if it makes any difference. In a pinch, at least, the substitute was great!

Your recipe says beer or soda......what kind of soda?

I am so sorry I missed this comment so long ago. I have used lemon lime soda. I think something like ginger ale would be good too. I hope you were able to make something good.
