Beer Bread

This quick and easy recipe is one of my go-to’s! It’s so easy {a huge plus in my book} and is the perfect side for just about any meal you’re planning. A major perk is that there are no special ingredients, so you on nights where I don’t plan ahead {let’s be real, that’s almost every night} I already have everything I need.

 

Let’s get started:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Generously (and I mean generously) grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan. I use Pam Cooking Spray, but you can also use butter if you prefer.

Add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt to a large bowl and whisk together until combined.  Add beer and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. It seriously doesn’t matter what kind of beer you use, so I just find an old can or one of Christian’s that I don’t drink. Shh!

Pour half of the melted butter into greased loaf pan.  Add the batter, then pour the remaining melted butter on top of your batter

 

Bake on center rack for 50-60 minutes. Since my pans are on the darker side, I always make sure to check after 50 minutes. The top should be brown and crispy and a toothpick should come out clean when inserted into the center of the loaf.

 

Remove from oven, let sit in the pan for 5 minutes.

Remove from pan and serve immediately! Since there’s already quite a bit of butter in the bread and I serve it warm, I substitute spray butter when serving it.
