Beer Bread Recipes

Beer bread is fantastic with just about any meal, but it particularly compliments soups, stews, and chowders. Start to finish in under an hour!


Total Time: 45 - 60 minutes

Yield: 8-10 slices


  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 tsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1 bottle or can dark beer (12 oz)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray standard loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Sift flour, sugar, and salt together.
  3. Add honey and caraway seeds. Slowly fold in beer with spatula or spoon.
  4. Dough should be thick but not as dense as biscuit dough.
  5. Turn dough into loaf pan, leveling gently with back of spatula.
  6. Bake 45 minutes, remove from oven and brush on melted butter and bake an additional 5 minutes. This step is optional but it does give the top a nice, golden touch.
  7. Allow to cool 10 minutes. Serve warm for best results.

I am not into baking bread but this recipe is so darn tasty and easy that I simply can't resist. Hint: You can substitute the chives with basil, cilantro, or even minced onions as yummy variations.

A year ago I was introduced to Tastefully Simple. I love every product that I have purchased from them but they are kind of expensive. The one that I liked the most was their Beer Bread Mix.

The beer batter also makes good dinner rolls. Divide the batter among 18 greased muffin tins and bake at 350, 15 - 20 minutes.

Breads, Warm and cold alike
Beer yeast

Take 4 large potatoes, 1 double handful of hops, put in a sack and boil with the potatoes; dip the potatoes out of the water when done into a gallon crock and mash them fine, then pour the water over gradually; mix well, then fill the crock with cold water and stir in 1/2 cup of salt, 1 cup of sugar, 1 pint of good yeast; then set in a warm place to ferment. Eight hours will suffice, and then tie up and keep in a cool place.

Hope this helps, the recipe is from a 1908 book, Maryjo
