Beer Bread!

What you need: 

3 cup flour (sifted)
3 teaspoon baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1 teaspoon salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1/4 cup sugar
1 (12 oz) can beer (I’ve used an Apricot Wheat)
1/8 to 1/4 cup melted vegan margarine + extra for brushing.

What you do: 

I believe I modified this recipe from Food Network.
1. Preheat oven to 375˚F.
2. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar very well.
3. Add margarine and beer, mix well, but not too much.
4. Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan.
5. Bake 50 minutes, brush top with margarine, bake additional 3 to 5 minutes until top is golden/light brown.
6. Cool 5-10 minutes, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes more before cutting.
- I usually add 1/4 cup raisins to mixture before baking.
- Walnuts or pecans might also be good to use.

I'm eating the one made in the oven, and it is good. Next week end we will go out of town, and i was planning on taking some things to eat with us.
I will make a beer bread, i'm sure that even our roommates will like it.
Thanks for sharing.


Okay so i tried it yesterday at 1 am, in the bread machine but it didn't cook enough i think.
So i will try it again today but in the oven.
Otherwise it is delicious, i had four slices, grilled this morning.
I used 2 cups whole wheat flour and 1 cup white flour.
What i like the most is the beer flavour.


I can't believe how easy this was! I used a leftover holiday pumpkin beer and added ginger and cinnamon to the batter.


Made this herbed with some fresh rosemary and dried sage, then sprinkled fancy grey sea salt on top before baking.  I also cut the sugar a wee bit, by a few tablespoons.  YUM!


YummyYummy! I used self-rising flour, 1/4 c. Earth Balance, & New Belgium's 1554 dark beer... I also added 1/4 c. of dry cheez mix found elsewhere on the site-- -- and it turned out great. Definite make-again!!


I've been aggravating to accomplish aliment for the longest time, but accept had no luck. I accusation my bootless attempts on the aggrandize that I'd been using. I fabricated this aliment this morning and it worked! I assuredly fabricated a acceptable bread.

say what?


Made this again, with the Raspberry-Wheat beer I talked about.  Yum!  You can certainly taste hints of raspberry in the bread. 


very good, and so easy - I've never made bread using baking powder before :) i put in some raisins, and used Carlsberg. It turned out a little too sweet for sandwich stuff, but for jam, peanutbutter and other such breakfast-y things it's perfect :) I'd probably just add less sugar next time, though :)


This was the perfect recipe for me!  So easy and simple ingredients. 

I've been trying to make bread for the longest time, but have had no luck.  I blame my failed attempts on the yeast that I'd been using.  I made this bread this morning and it worked!  I finally made a good bread.

Next time I'm going to try using a local raspberry-wheat beer and top the bread with raspberry jam.


So I made the bread~ridiculously easy to make, and it is amazing! I used it for my pb+j sandwich today and it was so tastey. The stella made it have a musky flavore and I bet using a sweeter beer would make it taste even better!
