Old Fashioned Beer Bread

Here is the recipe for the Old Fashioned Beer Bread that I served with the Vegetable Beef Soup. I love Beer Bread, it is so great served with any soup or stew. I got a few pictures of the bread before it was finished and demolished. The crust turns out so golden brown every time.

Spread mixture into a greased and floured bread pan. (I use the Crisco spray with flour)

Um right out of the oven. Let cool about 5 minutes in the loaf pan then

remove, cool completely and slice.

Old Fashioned Beer Bread

3 - cups self rising flour (measured then sifted)
1/4 - cup sugar
1 - 12 oz can of beer (do not use a dark beer)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together. Grease and flour a loaf pan. 

Spread mixture into the pan, using a brush or your fingers smooth out the top of the loaf with melted butter. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. 

Remove bread from oven, make a slight slit down the top of bread and brush ¼ stick of melted butter on top and bake an additional 10 minutes. 

Remove from oven and cool in loaf pan for 10 minutes, then remove to wire rack or plate and cool completely.

Cook's Note: This bread is wonderful the next day, spread on some butter and sprinkle cinnamon sugar and top and toast in your toaster oven umm.

I think you can add baking powder to all-purpose flour to make it "self-rising". Does anyone know the ratio? Thanks.

Leftie Lady I have updated the Beer Bread Recipe post with the information on how to make Self Rising Flour using All Purpose flour. I have also listed it on the printable version of the recipe as well. I hope this helps.

You mean I don't have to knead or let rise or anything for this? Awesome.

I make this all the time but with Pepsi or Mt Dew or whatever soda I have on hand...the pepsi will make the bread a little darker and denser but it's still pretty doggone yummy :).

I will never buy the Tastefully Simple mix again after making this. I made a loaf last night and there was none left. Tonight my son is making it.

I have the Tastefully Simple Beer Bread mix and while it is very good, I would love to be able to make my own and not have to special order it! I can't wait to try this tonight with your beef veggie stew I am making.
