Beer Bread

Three ingredients combine to create a beautiful loaf of bread. Self-rising flour is the key to success and your choice of carbonated beverage is the key to the resulting flavor.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 50 mins
Total Time 1 hr 5 mins
Servings 12 Slices


  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 12 ounce bottle beer room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine self-rising flour and sugar. Pour beer over flour/sugar mixture and stir gently until combined. Dough will be very sticky.
  • Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray and transfer dough into loaf pan (8.5"x4.5"x2.5").
  • Allow dough to rest in pan for 10 minutes. Dough will begin to rise.
  • Drizzle melted butter over the top, if desired.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes. Bread is fully baked when it resists pressure in the center.
  • Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes in the pan. Invert loaf onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool for 15 more minutes before serving.


Beer Substitutions: The alcohol in beer is eliminated during the baking process. Non-alcoholic, carbonated beverages, can be substituted for the beer. Ginger beer is an excellent alternative.
