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.

Spray a bread pan with cooking oil.
In a large bowl add the flour,
baking powder, salt and sugar.
Whisk to combine.
Pour in the room temperature beer.
Stir to combine but do not over mix.
Mixture should not look smooth.
Place the mixture into
the prepared bread pan.
Drizzle the melted butter over the top
making sure you cover the entire top.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for
50 minutes or until golden brown and crusty.
Run a knife along the outside edge of the bread
pan to make sure it doesn’t stick. Let it sit for
5 minutes then carefully remove it from
the pan and to a cooling rack.
Let it sit for 30 minutes, slice and serve.
Store leftovers in an airtight bag.

Love the preparation Diane ❤️
Yes it doesn’t get any easier than this! Thanks!
This looks delicious!
It is Laci you have to give it a try, so easy!
Its look , that cooking is so easy.. I will try.. soon
Enjoy it never lasts long in our house! Lol
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.
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.
Holy Cow you have made so much progress! I knew you would do great. Best thing you did was to hire a web designer. You are amazing!
Love beer bread and my kids used to make it coming in from school for our dinner. I think its time to start again for the two of us!
That’s what we usually do but I let the grandkids try it this time and they loved it.
I have to try this! Looks yum!
It is very good enjoy!
This is so perfect, I’m just learning to make bread – thanks!
You’re welcome! Try different types of beer to get the one you like best. I use Budweiser but any will work, enjoy Beth!
good to know, i was wondering about that
Super and healthy
It tastes really good!!! Thank you so much!
Thanks for sharing this delicious Beer Bread recipe.❤️
Now that’s an interesting way to use beer! Do you taste it in the final product?
You don’t taste the beer at all, however, different types of beer will flavor the bread differently.
Thanks for sharing another great recipe.🌹👍🙏
You are so welcome!
Thanks Diane, printed this so i can try it. I love bread but have never seen beer bread. 🍞🍻☘️
My husband LOVES this bread. It is more of a bread and butter bread because you cut thick slices. We never have any left to try it on a sandwich. 😂🤣😂
I’m going to pass this on to my grandson, who is a great bread maker. Thank you!
This will be the quickest and easiest bread he will probably ever make. Thank you 💕
I need to give this a try!
So simple Jacquie and once you make it the first time you will want more…lol
This is such a great option for those who cannot find yeast in Amish country 🙂
Yes the yeast in the beer replaces it. Have to save all my yeast from Amish Country for later…lol
such an interesting recipe!
It really is amazing how it turns out so good. Thank you!
Can’t remember the last time I had beer. Don’t think I’ve ever had it in bread format lol!
We don’t drink either. I told my husband to get a 6 pack of 12 oz. beers and they didn’t even have it! All they sold was 16 oz. Nothing like buying beer. For bread only…lol
Lol!! I don’t judge you!
That’s why we get along so good! 🥰
Thank you it tastes so good. ❤️
I have a weakness for homemade bread. This looks good.
Me too! This was gone in a day mostly my hubby…lol Thank you Christy!
Humm,..comments have not been coming thru. Beer bread is the best. My kids also knew how to make it after school for dinner. They thought it cool to pop a beer!
Hahahaha my grandkids thought it was good because they were having beer.
I don’t like normal beer *at all* but this bread looks really delicious, Diane! Especially warm and with butter… Yum! 😊🌹🌞
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
Looks great. What style of beer works best for beer bread? Thanks for posting, Diane.
Thanks! Any kind that is your favorite, I use Budweiser. You are very welcome Juliann!
Looks delicious. xx
Thank you ❤️
Looks great, Diane!! Will definitely give it a go!!
Let me know what you think Donna. We LOVE this bread just with butter. It never lasts long enough to try with anything else! Lol
Any type of bread draws me like a magnet – this looks very good and simple to make Diane.
Oh yes you could definitely make this Linda! But you would have to fire up the oven! 😁
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 can’t wait to see what you make!
I think I have seen 150 easy chicken in the crockpot recipes – now to narrow some down … 😉
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.
I simple love beer bread! Easy to make and suits to so many dishes!
I never seem to get it with any dishes. It disappears immediately here with just butter…lol Maybe I should make two at a time!
I think fresh and a little warm is the best and as it is easy lol, simple repeat the next day
I have never tasted beer bread and I don’t imbibe, but today I feel like having some of your delicious looking beer bread (i.e. the beer minus the bread!) 🙂
hahahaha I like the way you think! ❤️
Thank you! ❤️
Oh my- I don’t think I could handle the beer! Is there possibly a way to make it without beer?
No the beer replaces the yeast. The alcohol completely cooks out of it and it doesn’t taste anything like beer.
Oh, how interesting! I might give it a try 🙂
I don’t really care for beer so when we have company and I have to buy it, this is perfect for the beer that’s left. Any particular brand that’s better than another?
I have only used Budweiser but any would work. What a great way to use the leftovers!
Reblogged this on Recipe Goals.
Thank you! ❤️
I am very much looking forward to baking your Beer Bread recipe. Thank you!
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?
I wouldn’t it expires…lol
Looks so delicious!
It is very good and disappears in a hurry…lol Thank you so much!!!!
Haha I can imagine!
Definitely trying this bread ! Thanks !
It is really good enjoy!
I have never tried this. Thank you for sharing.
You’re welcome it is great warm with butter right out of the oven.
NO. WAY. No kneading? No yeast? Fabulous!! I can’t wait!
I know you sound like I did the first time I made this years ago. I said there was no way it would turn out and it did and has ever since.
I am going to make this today. It may end up on my Positivity Post on Friday.
My husband goes crazy over this bread. One loaf is never enough!
I made it and love it. I used it with dinner, breakfast with peanut butter and then with melted cheese and bacon. I still have half a loaf left, but will have it with dinner again. Yummy for sure.
I am so glad you liked it Carla!!!
Thank you so much for sharing!!! ❤️
Thank you, for the recipe. I made it with cheese and it was delicious! I linked your post to mine. 🙂 https://autumnbaygal.blog/2020/09/16/cheese-beer-bread/
Your bread turned out amazing! Thanks for adding my website!
Thanks for sharing this Carla! ❤️
Beer and bread!! What a great combination!
Oh yes and it tastes great and is super easy to make! Thank you Vinny!
I’m definitely going to try this! My mom makes beer cheese so next week I may just take some on this over there! Thanks!! 🤠
Oh yes!!!! Beer cheese on beer bread can it get any better? 🤣
I’m going to make this and share on my Instagram! I’ll give you credit but I’m excited to try it!!
You are going to love it! It is the easiest bread you will ever make from scratch. Try it with different flavors of beer to change it up. Start with regular beer to see what the normal loaf tastes like first though. It is even better the next day if you seal it in a plastic bag. Seems to get most moist.
