Beer Bread

I love me some beer bread---it is the best reason to go to a Tastefully Simple party :).  However, I don't like paying over $5,00 for simple ingredients I am sure to have in my pantry.

So, I set out to find a comparable bread that I could make without having to contact, order and wait for a TS representative.  I wanted the airy, yet hearty texture--and the subtle sweetness that goes well with EVERYTHING!

After a little research, I quickly realized the only things that come in that little packet for $5.50 is flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.... hmmm... I have that in my pantry on any given day, don't you?

  • 3 cups flour (sifted-this is important!)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder 
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 (12 ounce) can beer (experiment with which beer you like best, in the bread)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup melted butter (depending on your personal tastes)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients and beer.

Pour into a greased loaf pan.

Pour melted butter over mixture.

Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes. (watch it though, because all ovens are different--I took my loaf 8 minutes early, and it was PERFECT)

Of course, you can just mix up the dry ingredients, with attached instructions and a bottle of beer, to make a beer bread gift!!  If you are giving work or at a school--it is probably a good idea to leave the beer at home!
