Beer Bread

If you don’t think you can make a loaf of bread then think again. Even my grandkids can make this Beer Bread. There is no yeast, no kneading and no rising! All you do is dump, stir and bake. It is my husbands favorite bread that I make.

  1. Wow! Looks easy enough. Can you explain if the type of beer used changes the flavor? Also, can I substitute the sugar for honey? Thanks, Diane. Interesting recipe.

    • We have so many different brands of beer and each one has it’s own unique taste. So use whatever you like best then experiment with other brands to see what you like the best. I can’t promise the honey will work because it is a very thick batter and honey will take more stirring to incorporate it into the batter, however, I would definitely give it a try! Let me know how it turns out.

  2. So busy trying to keep afloat, unfortunately no time to read your posts. I’m sorry. Will continue to follow and hopefully a day will come when I have time again. Now that my WP site is managed by a web designer I’ve hired, I think I lost my WP followers in the transition. No time to post now anyway. Learning Instagram and have a new Dragonfly Collection. “Jewel” – wings made from craft beer cans.
    Oh… And started an Etsy shop too. First order shipped today to Seattle.
    Miss you!

    • You can’t taste beer. The beer acts as the yeast in the bread and is so easy to make. It is a bread and butter kind of bread. I don’t think it would work for sandwiches but then again I never tried because it disappears so fast…lol

      • Well Heaven forbid I should fire up the oven Diane!!
        I have to unpack the crock pot, but first need to make room somewhere to put it … thought perhaps I need to oil the butcher block and let it dry a little after – I’ve not done it in a while. I could keep it there til I am ready to use it. The day it arrived, it was heavy to get in the door – 28 pounds. I said to myself “what was I thinking?” I have gotten the four crockpot cookbooks I ordered from Amazon and been tucking away some easy recipes I’ve found in the two Facebook crock pot sites. Maybe over Labor Day weekend …I have a little painting project to do on the weekend, first weekend it is not raining or hot and humid … likely October. 🙂

      • I’ll be waiting…lol I don’t know if I told you about the Lipton spaghetti or not. That has become my grandsons favorite meal. I let the kids pick one day of what they want for supper and his response is always “Grandma’s special spaghetti!” I will only make it once every third week but he still asks…lol

      • I am so glad I told you about it Diane. That is funny because it has the oniony taste – your kids get to try so many types of food, they would not be put off by the onion taste in the spaghetti. I am seeing recipes for spaghetti in the crockpot too. Yesterday at Meijer, I saw noodles made with cauliflower or tomato. Well that’s different.

  3. There’s a bottle of beer sitting in my Mom’s fridge that has been there at least 10 years. I know this because my Dad would’ve been the one to buy it and he died in 2011. Can I use a beer that’s been around that long?
