Ok who knew homemade beer bread could be this easy? Not me.

I always bought the prepackaged boxes that you added beer to and poured butter over the top. Obviously making your own was much more labor intensive right?

Not so much. Like maybe an extra 5 minutes of labor. Totally worth it. Plus whenever I needed a box of it, you guessed it, I never had it on hand! Typical right?!

Even I can carve out an extra 5 minutes in a day to make homemade beer bread. Trust me if I could you can too!

If you want to you could even mix up some bags of the mix so when you want a loaf of beer bread you have it all ready to go. Life does not get much simpler than this when it comes to bread.

And if you don’t have beer on hand well then, good for you, go buy some, drink a few and make this bread!

    So easy, right? I take the TOTAL cheaters route and use self-rising flour so that it is even EASIER! :) Pinning!

      Haha and this sound completely logical to a fellow blogger! Our minds seem to work in the same way :)

  • toni

    do you think this could be made with King Arthur Flour – glutenfree multi-purpose flour?

    • Julie Evink

      I would guess it could be but I’ve never done it that way so I can’t guarantee anything!

  • Jocelyn

    Mmmm, I’m just imagining how amazing this tasted!! I can’t believe how easy it was to make! I’m definitely giving this a try!!

    Do you need to let it rise like regular bread dough? Someone mentioned using self-rising flour so not sure if I can just stick it in the oven after mixing w/regular flour or not so much? Thanks for posting!

    • Julie Evink

      Nope just stick it in the oven and you are good to go! No rising…that’s why I love this recipe!

  • Carrie @ Frugal Foodie Mama

    I made your beer bread with our dinner tonight and can I say this is now the only beer bread recipe I will ever use from now on?? ;) So good & WAY better than those boxed beer bread mixes!
