Beer Bread Recipe

Since Thanksgiving, I've tried 3 different recipes for yeast rolls. All were time consuming and yielded decent rolls but nothing special. My teenage son said it best, “none of them are as good as Beer Bread.”

I'm always shocked to see boxes of beer bread mix sold for $8!  The directions on the box say to add beer and butter, so for $8 you're being sold some very expensive flour and sugar!

Beer Bread Recipe

If you've never made Beer Bread, it's frugalicious, fast and foolproof! Beer Bread is frugal because you can make it for less than $1. Beer Bread is fast because no kneading or rising is required! Beer Bread is delicious, and don't worry, it's family friendly because the alcohol cooks off.The next time you want to serve homemade bread for dinner, give Beer Bread a try! How about Beer Bread with a bowl of soup for a quick and easy dinner tonight?

Can’t wait to try this! Directions say to “serve warm”…However, I was thinking of making several loaves and handing out as Christmas party hostess gifts. What is your thought on this?

It’s best warm, so if you give it as a hostess gift…just include a tag that says wrap in foil & heat in a 350 oven for about 10 minutes.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
