Beer Bread

This is a quick bread that uses both self-rising flour and beer for leavening. Different beers will give it a different flavor – and it can take any number of add-ins, from shredded cheese to nuts and seeds.

To make your own self-rising flour, merely mix:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 12 oz beer
  • 1 stick Melted butter

Mix flour, sugar, and beer of choice. Spread into a 4″ x 8″ bread pan.  Pour melted butter on top.  Bake at 350° about 1 hour.

It’s best to place loaf pan on a sheet pan to catch potential spills.
