Beer Bread has been showing up all across the “www” lately. Since everyone seems to have fallen in love with this bread, I decided to try my hand at making some. I’m not sure if that was a good idea or not since I made 3 loaves in one afternoon and they were devoured in no time!
This bread is so stinking easy to make that I was actually a bit unsure at how it would turn out. Let me just state for the record books that my uneasiness was quickly put to rest. After about 50 minutes of the beautiful smell of homemade bread wafting through my house, I pulled the pan out of the oven and was so excited about what I was about to experience. I let the bread cool for a bit, sliced off a piece then smeared on some butter. That’s when I fell in love. Yes, I fell in love with Beer Bread just like all those folks on the internet. Now, don’t judge me because once you make this recipe, you’ll feel the same way.
What You’ll Need To Make Beer Bread?
This bread is made in just three easy steps. Measure, stir, and bake, that’s it. Not only is it easy to whip up, but it’s also made with simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand. Here’s what you’ll need:
- All-purpose Flour
- Baking Powder
This recipe is not only great as it is but it also can be customized with other ingredients you like. Try adding in some herbs, garlic, or cheese for extra flavor.
Beer Bread is great to serve at any meal. Toast up a slice for breakfast with your favorite jam or jelly. Use a couple of slices for a sandwich loaded with meat and cheese or PB&J. It’s outrageously good served with soup or chili, too. I took a couple of slices, cut them into cubes, tossed them in olive oil and garlic then toasted them up. Beer Bread croutons are now my new, favorite thing to add to a salad.
Can You Freeze Beer Bread?
This quick bread freezes beautifully. Bake the bread per the direction then let it cool. Wrap it in aluminum foil then place in a plastic bag. When you’re ready to use the bread, remove it from the plastic bag and place it in the oven at 300 degrees for about 20 minutes until reheated.
