And that includes the salt.

I was never, ever, planning on posting this bread and not because it is not amazingly delicious.

Because I promise you this bread will rock your world. So much so that you may be making it once a week from here on out. It’s just that good and by far the easiest thing I make. Without a doubt.

The only reason I was not going to post this recipe is because it is embarrassingly easy. One bowl, five-minute prep – tops (seriously tops) and five ingredients that I honestly think most everyone always has on hand.

Flour, baking powder, honey, salt and beer.

That’s it you guys and like I already said, it is honestly one of the best breads you will ever have.

Today is the day I am giving in and showing you guys one of my most requested recipes.

I am not lying, I make a lot of food (A LOT). Actually, I make so much food that typically we have two or three freshly baked desserts lying around on any given day. You would think I would give them away, but I can’t. By the time I am done shooting them and by the time my family has gotten their hands on the treats, it looks like an animal got to them.

In all fairness, I do a number on them while photographing, but my family kind of destroys them. Some people pick off their favorite parts first, some people go straight for the middle and some people dump the containers up side down, shake um side to side and do a little dance well they’re at  it.

My mom actually asked me if I had anything for her to take to this “thing” she had last night. I was like, seriously…sure, if you want to take the bars and that cake…that looks like animals got to it. Yeah, she passed. So I quickly whipped her up a batch of this beer bread, so easy and such a crowd pleaser!

I make a lot of food around here, sweets, breads, savory dinners, snacks, drinks – a lot, and this bread is practically a staple on our dinner table. I mean, we are having it again tonight.

It’s good enough that I make it when we have people over, bring it with me if we ever actually go anywhere (which is never, but I would) and have even made it on Thanksgiving and Christmas. People love this bread, love, love, love it.

It actually still amazes me how much people love it and how incredibly easy it is. It’s just plain bazar.

If you are scared of homemade bread, this is the bread to make. You can’t mess it up. Ok, well I am sure if you added way too much baking powder, dumped in tablespoons of salt or maybe accidentally grabbed the powdered sugar instead of the flour. Yeah, in that case I think it would be bad.

But I don’t think that is going to happen.

I like this bread paired best with homemade chili or gumbo, but it’s so good aside a roasted chicken, grilled steak or even leftover for breakfast. I am telling you, this is your new favorite bread. Trust me!

  1. Hi Tieghan!
    Would this work with an IPA? We have friends coming over this weekend and I would love to make this paired with your Penne Vodka recipe! I only have IPAs in the house. And can I make this a day ahead and just reheat it before my guests arrive?

    1. Hi there! Yes, that would definitely work! And yes it can definitely be made ahead, I would just put it in the microwave or oven to reheat it 🙂 Enjoy! xTieghan

    My daughter made this today for part of our Canadian Thanksgiving meal. It is literally SO delicious. The whole family kept talking about it. It was so quick and so easy to make. It will definitely be my go to quick bread for the upcoming winter. It is superb.

  3. This is one of our favorite recipes. Bread seems so intimidating to me but this is so easy. I always have all these ingredients on hand and can take a meal up a notch with this!

    Outside crunch was delicious. On convect bake the outside cooked way too quickly and the inside wasn’t done, so I wouldn’t recommend that. Also, I think a more flavorful beer would be much better. Mine made a very bland loaf.
