  1. Wondering if an egg yolk makes a difference in texture? Anyone know??
    How about honey in place of sugar- again- anyone tried? If so same measurement or different??

    1. I recommend sticking to the recipe. With bread, and baking in general, you can always improv and see what happens. It may work, may not. If you stick to the ratios given, it will work out as intended.

      Adding an egg yolk would necessitate the addition of more flour. Same with honey, since it’s a liquid rather than a solid like granulated sugar is.

  2. DELICIOUS! My 15 year old son actually made the bread – super easy and very tasty. Do you think it would taste differently depending on what type of beer you use? Stout versus a light beer for example – just wondering

    1. I definitely think that it will taste differently depending on what beer you use. I made a pumpkin beer bread with pumpkin beer a couple falls ago and that one tasted much different than this one. I mean not ‘hugely’ different but you know what I mean; the flavor does change. Have fun playing around!

  3. Averie, this has to be the easiest bread ever. I did enjoy it with two bowls of bean soup with smoked sausage and two slices of bread. I can’t stop eating it! Thanks for a great recipe. Actually, I love your site and recipes. Oh, it’s wonderful toasted with peanut butter.:)

    1. Mmm with PB sounds great! Thanks for your support and so glad this bread and my other recipes have been a success for you!

  4. I just made two loaves and am halfway through one of them. Delicious! I made soup so this is perfect…if they last til supper. lol

    1. Oh I love that you made 2 loaves and are already halfway through! This would be such a perfect bread with soup! Yum! Enjoy :)

  5. This beer bread looks too easy and yummy not to try. I can’t wait to give it a whirl in my oven! Baking everything under the sun in this arctic tundra of a winter I’m so blessed to live in :)

  6. Beer bread with warm butter and honey? I’m thinking I’ll make some people VERY happy at our New Year’s Eve brunch! :)

  7. I’ve never tried beer bread before, but if it’s as easy as it sounds, I bet this would be a great introduction! I’m excited to give this a go!

  8. Partnering with Heineken? Jelly! I’ve always wanted to make beer bread. You’ve inspired me once again, Averie!
