Beer Bread – Yep, It’s a Real Thing…

Today we continue great recipes for a Labor Day BBQ with Beer Bread.  I know, I didn’t believe it was a real thing either.  I tried this for the first time while staying at our good friends house this summer.  It’s brown and crispy on the outside, but still soft and sweet on the inside.

This is another easy recipe to make, plus most of the ingredients can already be found in your home.  Here’s what you’ll need:

(Recipe from: The Novice Chef Blog

  • 3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) Beer – I used Bud Light
  • 1/2 Cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted (Note: Feel free to reduce to 1/4 cup.)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.

In medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Using a wooden spoon, stir the beer into the dry ingredients until just mixed.

Pour half of the melted butter into the loaf pan.  Then spoon the batter into the pan, and pour the rest of the button on top of the batter.  Slide a baking sheet onto a lower rack to catch any butter that might overflow from the loaf pan.  *Note: I could have used less butter on top of the batter.

Bake for 50-60 minutes, until golden brown.  Serve immediately.

Two great combinations: Beer + Bread = Awesomeness!
