Thankfully there are some recipes out there that cut out all of the time consuming steps. A few months ago I shared a delicious and easy homemade Buttermilk Oat Loaf recipe, and now I'm sharing with y'all another recipe that is even easier, if you can believe it. This Easy Beer Bread recipe is mixed and ready for the oven in less than 5 minutes. Add all of the ingredients to a bowl, mix until incorporated, bake for about 50 minutes, and you have yourself freshly made bread. FRESH BREAD IN UNDER AN HOUR and no kneading or rising required. You can't beat that.
On top of how easy this recipe is, the end results are delectable. Because this recipe calls for beer, it tastes similar to yeast breads that take all day to make. Everyone will think you slaved away in the kitchen when they try a slice of this bread. And I fully support not disclosing the recipe to them and letting them dote on you for being such a great bread maker and spending your precious time in the kitchen-it'll be our little secret. So, go ahead and grab the ingredients and a mixing bowl and make a loaf of this bread. And feel free to stop by in an hour and let me know if this is now your favorite bread recipe.
(1 loaf, 8-10 servings)
3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted*
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
12 ounces beer (any kind)
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a standard loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, measure flour by spooning it into a measuring cup, leveling it off, and then sifting (this step is crucial in achieving a light, tender, and soft loaf). Add baking powder, sugar, and salt to sifted flour and whisk ingredients together. Pour in beer and melted butter. Mix until ingredients are fully incorporated, careful not to over mix.
Pour batter into prepared baking dish. Bake for 50 minutes, or until bread is fully cooked. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
*If you have self-rising flour, use 3 cups of self-rising flour and eliminate the baking powder and salt.
