Beer Bread

If you've never made homemade bread because you think it's too difficult, here is the recipe for you.  No kneading, no rising, no hassle!  It really is a simple recipe.  But it tastes so good!  And it will make your house smell awesome!

I used Abita Amber beer for this recipe and it was delicious!  But, you can use any beer you have on hand.


3 cups all purpose four
1 1/2 TBS baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 TBS sugar
1 (12 oz) bottle of beer

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a loaf pan well.  I like to use margarine spread.  It works great and adds a little buttery flavor. (Shortening or cooking spray works, too)

Next, mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl.  Whisk together well.  Add the beer.

Stir just until combined, about a minute.  You don't want to over work the dough.

Spoon the batter into the greased loaf pan and smooth out the top.

Bake for 1 hour.

This bread could not be easier!  And it tastes great!  It's got a wonderful malty flavor from the beer.  It's soft and fluffy on the inside with a great crust on the outside.

So, make homemade bread!  Everyone will be super impressed (we won't tell them how easy it was).
