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
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.
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.
To put your special touch to this easy beer bread recipe you can add in your favorite shredded cheese or sauté some hot peppers with the onion. Personally, my family likes this easy beer bread recipe just as it is written.
