Buttery Beer Bread

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Yield:  1 9x5 loaf


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup (5 1/2 tablespoons) salted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 (12 oz) can beer ( I used Coor's Light because it was in the fridge, but your fave beer will work!)


1. Pre-heat the oven to 350° and grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray, set it aside.  Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir well with a wooden spoon. 

2. Pour beer and 3 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter into the dry mixture. Stir until beer bread dough is just combined. Turn out dough into the prepared loaf pan and gently press it evenly into the pan. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter evenly over the bread dough. 

3. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the top of the loaf is lightly browned and it appears done. Remove pan from oven and allow to cool for 15-20 minutes on a rack. Serve warm and enjoy!
