Beer Bread (LID)

Beer Bread

I have been making this beer bread for years.  It’s sooo quick and easy.  It’s perfect for LID. It makes great toast the next day. Shiner Bock is my favorite beer for making this bread.

You can use any beer to make this bread, but  I don’t recommend Heineken for making it though….funky tasting results.

LID Beer Bread

Beer Bread

3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon non-iodized salt (I use Morton’s Coarse Kosher Salt)
12 ounces beer, at room temperature

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly oil (or spray with nonstick cooking spray) a 9 X 5 inch loaf pan; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and non-iodized salt.  Add the beer and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined.

Beer Bread Before Baking

Transfer batter to the prepared pan.  Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top is light golden.  Turn out onto a rack to cool.

    I seriously don’t know what I would have done without this recipe!! I’m on day 10 of my first LID experience. Last night I cubed and toasted half a loaf and used it to make a yummy panzanella. This bread is ridiculously easy to make, comforting and tastes amazing no matter what you do to it. Thank you!!!

      You are so welcome! I am so happy my beer bread recipe has helped you through LID. Thank you for letting me know. It really is a great (and easy) bread. You can make it with hard apple cider too for something a little sweeter. I hope all goes well for you. Best wishes!

    This looks easy and good. Going to try it with a octoberfest beer. What do you use for a spread? I havent figured that out yet.

      I bet it is good with an Octoberfest beer! It’s great made with hard apple cider too (turns out sweeter, great for breakfast). I used Earth Balance Soy-Free Buttery Spread as a butter substitute. Salt is listed in the ingredients list, but it’s not iodized salt or sea salt, so it’s fine for LID. You can have peanut butter, jams, jellies, and preserves as long as there isn’t a prohibited ingredient (like sea salt or soy oil, for example).
