I'm a prolific caterer and I've added this bread recipe to my repertoire because of its quick and easy preparation, and because my clients give it two enthusiastic thumbs up. One thing I do which no one else had addressed, is divide the batter between two small loaf pans, and then let it sit about a half-hour. It rises to about double its bulk, forms a crown, and produces a lighter, product ---- to die for! The 1/3 cup sugar addition others have mentioned is perfect and I add a handful of mexican-blend cheddar and jack cheeses (mix cheese with flour before adding beer.) Brush with butter and sprinkle with garlic salt half-way through baking, and repeat after removing from over. Perfect. Absolutely perfect.



My family has recently become addicted to Tastefully Simple's Beer Bread. At $5 a loaf, it's getting pricy so I tried this and WOW! My family loved it and my son said he like it BETTER! I did add 1/3 cup sugar as another suggested and it was great. I also made the self rising flour that someone posted (1 cup flour, 1 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt). Thanks for saving me some $$$



I love beer bread. It is super fast and couldn't be easier to make. I don't usually have self rising flour on hand so make my own. 1 c flour, 1 t baking powder and 1/2 t salt I have used all types of beer, everything from plain bud to hard cider. Cider is my favorite, it gives your bread a sweeter fruity taste. The only type I won't use again is Corona (no flavor). I recently added cheese and peppers to my bread and it was wonderful. I have also seen beer bread recipes that call for about a 1/4 cup of melted butter to be poored over the top before baking. I have done it both ways. If you use the butter I would decrease to about 2 Tablespoons, that is more than enough.
