Honey Beer Bread

May 25, 2013

Haven’t tried this one out yet but it’s coming up soon. 



Got any beer left over from the weekend? The yeast in the beer makes this one of the easiest bread recipes I know! I make this and the house is filled with the unbelievable smell of fresh-baked bread. The buttery, honey-wheat goodness is absolutely delicious, especially when it is warm and fresh from the oven. And the batter literally takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. What could be more simple?

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspooon salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) beer, any kind
  • 4 tablespoons (half stick) butter, melted (You can double this if you’d like)
  • (Makes 1 loaf)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a wooden spoon, stir the beer and honey into the dry ingredients until just mixed. (I recommend popping your honey in the microwave for a few seconds beforehand to make it easier to stir in!)

Pour half the melted butter into the loaf pan. Then spoon the batter into the pan, and pour the rest of the butter on top of the batter. (Use a pastry brush to spread it around if you’d like.)

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until top is golden brown and a toothpick/knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serve immediately.
