Quick and Easy Beer Bread Recipe

Easy Beer Bread Recipe Four

You are going to just love this easy beer bread recipe. And you know what, I betcha can’t eat just one slice from the awesome loaf, made from this easy beer bread recipe.

This quick and easy beer bread recipe makes it possible to serve and eat this homemade treat whenever you want, because it is truly quick to make. And the next time you need something special to take to a neighborhood get-together, or a family reunion, make up several loaves using this easy beer bread recipe - it will be the star of the meal. On chili night, we have to flip a coin at my house to decide whether to make this easy beer bread recipe or good old Southern cornbread.

Gather the ingredients to make this easy beer bread recipe.

¼ cup onion, finely diced

1 tbsp. olive oil

3 cups all purpose sifted flour

3 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

3 tbsp. sugar

1 bottle of Bud Light or your choice (12 ounce size)

¼ cup butter, melted

1 tbsp. butter, melted, optional

Let’s Cook

In a small sauté pan, sauté the finely diced onions in the olive oil until soft, about five minutes. Set aside.

Sift enough all-purpose flour to measure out 3 cups. Place the sifted flour into a large mixing bowl.

(Note:  When the ingredient list calls for ‘sifted flour,’ as it does in this easy beer bread recipe, that means to sift it before measuring. However, when the ingredient list calls for ‘flour sifted,’ that means to sift after measuring.)

Measure the baking powder, salt, garlic powder, and sugar into the flour. Stir to blend the dry ingredients.

Make a ‘well’ in the flour mixture, and pour in the onions.

Next, pour the ¼ cup of melted butter into the flour ‘well.’ Then, pour in about 1/3 of the bottle of Bud Light and stir. Next, add about half of what is left in the bottle; stir again. Lastly, pour in what’s left in the bottle, and stir until well mixed.

Easy Beer Bread Recipe Five

Pour the dough into a well-greased 8 1/2 inch x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan. Using the back of a large spoon, smooth over the top of the loaf.

Easy beer bread recipe – option:  Brush or drizzle the 1 tablespoon of melted butter over the top of the loaf before baking. Doing this will make a crispy crust on the loaf.

Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven approximately 1 hour, and using a toothpick, test for doneness. If the toothpick comes out clean, then it is done.

Leave the loaf in the pan for about 5 minutes before taking it out of the pan, and let the loaf set for an additional 10 minutes before slicing.

Nice looking recipe and well written too. Can I swap the garlic powder for chopped garlic?

I have never used fresh garlic in the easy beer bread recipe, but if I did, I would grate it, and add it to the onions. My husband doesn't like garlic, but I can use a little of the garlic powder and he doesn't mind. Hope this works for you. Thanks for commenting.
