I'm In Love With Beer


Beer Bread

I'm in love with beer bread!!!

Where have you been all my life?!?!?

Some days, do you ever feel like you just climbed out from underneath a mushroom...peered at the world with squinty eyes and said "Where am I?"

Oh my...it happens to me quite often!

I was simply looking for something to serve with my homemade bean soup...and found this post from seven years ago. Seven years!

Warm or cold. With or without butter. Delicious!!!

Three simple ingredients...how could it go wrong?!

Quoted from TheKitchn.com

Eula's Beer Bread

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a bread pan w/ cooking spray. If it's the new non-stick pan, don't grease at all.

In a large bowl, stir together w/ a wooden spoon:
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • Add 1 can room temperature, not flat, beer.
Stir just until moistened & dump into the pan. Bake 1 hour 15 minutes, buttering the top after the first 45 minutes w/ butter or margarine, and then again in 15 minutes, and again when you pull it out of the oven. I use soft margarine & a paint brush. Cool 5 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

DON'T try to make this "healthy" by cutting down on the sugar. That's the secret, the sweet/salty thing going on w/ the sugar & the beer & the butter!

This is a "quick bread" that shouldn't be over-mixed. We've found the new non-stick pans will burn on the bottom when the butter melts down the sides.

It's HEAVENLY! And, I just used a cheap can of My Man's pi$$-water beer. Me? I prefer an Amber Ale if you please ;~)

We ate it warm with butter, the soup and a salad. My Man insisted on a couple of slices for breakfast. And, I had to have a slice before I went out to feed the herd in the mornin'!

Crystal said...

Oh boy I haven't had beer bread for a long time!! Maybe I need a recipe for my bread machine to try!

Cowgirl Rae said...

YES this is good!I have that recipe.
Since I don't each much starch and bread these days I have to pass. But this is a good one.
I like it warm best. And with butter, what's a matter with you?! margarine???

Go back to butter, girl.

Dang! That might be a bread, even I can make. It looks delicious!! I'm like you...ice cold, amber ale or a Blue Moon for me too! Might have to give it a go!

C-ingspots said...

Oh yes, and I second that earlier comment who said "margarine??" Seriously? Damn! It's butter or nothin'!!

gtyyup said...

Well, what I want to know is how you all knew it was margarine??? I always have both in the fridge; just happened to be using margarine. Still tasted great ;~)

Linda said...

I had forgotten about this! I have made it and it is truly delish!

Thirteen Sheep (Or More) said...

I think I can do that. Where did I last see the oven?

Paint Girl said...

I SERIOUSLY just made a loaf of Onion-Caraway Rye Beer Bread this morning at 5 AM because we had NO bread in the house for us! (Lots in the freezer for the Farmer's Market but none for us.) We both had two pieces, one before chores and one after. YUM!!

Beer bread is one of my favorites, too. I made some with oatmeal in it, and a touch of brown sugar (I think), that was yummy, too!

Mmmmm... looks so good... you know they say beer is just liquid bread!

Nancy Claeys said...

Homemade bread is so good -- no beer in the house, so I may have to borrow a can from the neighbor to make some. :)

Carol said...

Gonna try it....looks sooo good.
