Quick and Easy Beer Bread

I’ve partnered with Evite and Heineken to bring you this great beer bread recipe.

This quick beer bread has only six ingredients and comes together easily, perfect if you need an easy party recipe or fast weeknight option.

It makes the perfect accompaniment to chili, stew, or soup. And who can say no to homemade, fresh-baked bread? I sure can’t.

I’m a big fan of beer breads and have made Sweet Potato Maple Beer Bread and Honey Maple Beer Bread in the past.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • one 12-ounce bottle of beer (such as Heineken

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and spray an 8×4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray, or grease and flour the pan; set aside.
  2. To a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and stir to combine.
  3. Add the beer and stir to combine.
  4. Turn batter out into prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
  5. Evenly drizzle with melted butter.
  6. Bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean of with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. Allow bread to cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning it out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing and serving. Bread is best fresh, but will keep airtight at room temp for up to 4 days.
