with ingredients that many of you probably already have sitting around your kitchen.  I've been making these loaves for a couple months now after stumbling on on the Internet.  I could not believe how easy it was after making bread the traditional way for a while (prep the yeast, knead the dough, let refrigerate, knead again, etc etc).  So easy and tastes great.



Ingredients:

   * 3 cups flour (sifted)
   * 3 teaspoons baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
   * 1 teaspoon salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
   * 1/4 cup sugar
   * 1 (12 ounce) can beer
   * 1/2 cup melted butter (1/4 cup will do just fine)

Directions:

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. 2 Mix dry ingredients and beer.
  3. 3 Pour into a greased loaf pan.
  4. 4 Pour melted butter over mixture.
  5. 5 Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes.

QFT



The last batch I made I used a Shakespere Stout for both families for Thanksgiving snacks.  None made it home.

i love beer bread!

make sure you use a flavorful beer though. no natty light or the like, heavy beers are better in this case

Great!

I have some no-name regular flour that almost sabotaged my Thanksgiving gravy (lumped up).

I'll try it with your recipe. Nothing better than some warm bread and butter!

I have a couple of Guiness Stouts I'll try with it.

saved. I'll try it out tonight

Been making that for YEARS (minus the melted butter).

It's a meal in itself.

Been using this formula for a few years:

Five Minute Beer Bread

Great stuff!

I'll have to make some tonight.  Thanks!

We've been eating this since at least the 1970s.  Mom wrote the recipe down for me when I was in college.  It's fast and delicious.  We usually use whatever beer is on hand; I find that non-lite beer works best, and I've been experimenting with some of the more seasonal and flavored brews.  I might try a honey porter bread next.



I like to throw a couple of loaves of this bread together to take to office socials.  Very popular.



Goes great with a simple soup or stew.  I like to make a sausage stew or a hamburger-based soup.
Link Posted: 12/16/2010 9:28:04 AM EDT
Some people in the reviews section mentioned that you can taste the beer.  Which, for me, is fine.

It has a slightly sweet, hops flavor to it.  Varies greatly depending on the beer used.

So, for a person who does not care for beer, what would be the best beer to use?

I can tolerate the taste of Bud, so I might use that. Although, I like the recommendations of using flavored beers.....this might be fun to play with.

I concur.

You taste the "essence" of the beer.

Definately varies greatly upon beer used.  The stronger the beer, the stronger the flavor.

Regular old Bud works great, holiday type ales give it a different twist.  Light beers need more oomph, cheap beer seems to work best.

I'd try it. If I can't find something dark and chunky, I'm going to sacrifice a bottle of Sam Adams Blackberry Wheat.

Well I'm in impulse kind of guy.  Not being a beer drinker, I happened to have some beer I got which I never drank.  So needless to say I'm looking at 58mins until baking done.

Just about any "supermarket" beer would probably be fine.  I know people who hate beer with a passion who love this bread.

I insert a dollar into a register and almost immediately I am presented with delicious bread. It's almost like magic.

I've not tried it I'd guess it's probably between biscuits and bread as far as texture

What you get for one dollar is not bread.

Link Posted: 12/16/2010 11:09:17 AM EDT
Mine just came out of the oven.  Looks and smells great.   Can't wait to taste it.  



On a side note, it looks and smells like the bread served a local brewery/restaurant.  I'm guessing this is what they've been making.

Sounds like it would go great with chili.

REAL bread, super easy to make. Just takes time...
Link Posted: 12/16/2010 11:52:18 AM EDT
Update.  Just tried it.  Tasted pretty good.  I need to try some of the other beer suggested.  I just used some crappy stuff I had.  



NOTE:  2 things I recommend: 1.) Use 1/4 Cup Butter instead of 1/2 Cup Butter AND/OR 2.) Place Cookie Sheet under your bread pan.  The butter will boil over and make a mess.
Link Posted: 12/16/2010 12:09:25 PM EDT
I just put a loaf in the oven.  We had a bottle of honey wheat beer that I used.  It tasted like liquid bread anyway.  Hope it turns out good.
Link Posted: 12/16/2010 12:45:30 PM EDT
Dang it, I failed the internet today.  I have my batch cooking in the oven right now and I realized that I forgot to put in the sugar.  Hopefully the wheat flour and the Sam Adams Octoberfest will make up for it.

Add chopped japs, green chili's or shredded cheddar cheese to change it up a bit.
I have probably made a hundred loaves of this bread. Looks like I ate all 100 myself.

If you end up with left overs, pan fry it in the morning with butter for your breakfast toast. Even better than fresh.

Of course it would be with beans.  IF there are no beans, there is no chili.
