Beer Bread Recipe

Add a few simple ingredients to a can of beer and make a delicious loaf of beer bread. This bread is best eaten right from the oven. Heavenly! If you do have leftovers (doubtful!), it makes great toast.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Yield: 1 loaf


  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 12 ounces beer (NOT light beer)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten


Mix flour, baking powder, and salt with sugar. Add beer and egg both at once and stir. You may have to knead last of flour in with hands.

Place in greased 9-inch by 5-inch loaf pan and bake at 375 degrees until done - about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Remove from pan immediately and cool.

Yield: 1 loaf beer bread
