Beer Bread


This recipe may not necessarily fit in with your 2014 weight loss goals, but let me tell you it most definitely fits in with all your other goals. Want to have more fun? Fits. Want to become more popular? Fits. Want to eat more carbs? Drink more beer? Fits. Fits.

My mom used to make beer bread, and I loved it. Her recipe called for self-rising flour, but I didn’t have any. So I added baking powder, and it turned out just scrumptious.  Next time I might add some sharp cheddar cheese to the top, just to stick with the Wisconsin theme.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can beer
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Sea salt (optional)

Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and beer together in a bowl.  Pour into a greased 5×8 bread pan.  Bake at 375 for 45 minutes; brush with melted butter and bake for 10 minutes more. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve warm.
