I had to get somewhat creative b/c i only had reg. flour on hand. So i used 1 cup flour, 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt = 1 cup self-rising flour. The beer of choice tonight was a Budweiser Select and we thought it gave the bread a wonderful flava! This was a really easy and really tasty recipe for Beer Bread Mix! Thanks!


I have been searching for the perfect beer bread recipe and this hits the nail on the head! I left out the onion powder and the italian seasoning and increased the brown sugar to 1/3 cup and it tastes IDENTICAL to The tastefully simple stuff at a fraction of the cost! (I made several loaves with other recipes to get it to taste the same as the good box stuff and this is it!) I also made Jalapeno cheddar bread from it. When I add savory seasonings I use the amount of brown sugar posted in this recipe. If I am making plain bread I use the 1/3 cup! This is the best. It is different than using just self rising flour. I tried that as others have posted and it really is not the same texture. Go with this and you will never spend $5-6 a box again! Thanks for this recipe!


This is a really good beer bread recipe. Because of the recommendation from the previous reviewer I simply used 3 cups of self rising flour. My bread texture was perfect. The recipes I have seen previously call for 3 c of flour and 3 T of sugar. The extra tablespoon of sugar makes the bread a little sweeter. Also the brown sugar gives it a beautiful dark color. I switched the Italian seasoning for a creole spice because I thought it would blend better with the meat I was making. The recipe was as simple to follow as any beer bread and I will use it again. The only real warning I will give is make sure you use a high quality beer. I used a Honey Lager and it had great flavor. Cooking with beer is like cooking with wine, if you wouldn't drink it, don't cook with it.
