  2. 3 teaspoons baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)

  3. 1 teaspoon salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)

Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Mix dry ingredients and beer.

  3. Pour into a greased loaf pan.

  4. Pour melted butter over mixture.

  5. Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes.

  6. UPDATED NOTES: This recipe makes a very hearty bread with a crunchy, buttery crust. If you prefer a softer crust (like a traditional bread) mix the butter into the batter instead of pouring it over the top.

  7. Sifting flour for bread recipes is a must-do. Most people just scoop the 1 cup measure in the flour canister and level it off. That compacts the flour and will turn your bread into a "hard biscuit" as some have described. That's because they aren't sifting their flour! If you do not have a sifter, use a spoon to spoon the flour into the 1 cup measure. Try it once the "correct" way and you will see an amazing difference in the end product.

  8. I have had many email from you kind folks about using non-alcoholic beverages instead of beer. That is fine to do but I highly recommend adding a packet of Dry Active Yeast or 2 teaspoons of Bread (Machine) Yeast so that you get a proper rise.

  9. The final result should be a thick, hearty and very tasteful bread, NOT A BRICK! ;).

  10. Thank you all for the incredibly nice comments and those of you who left a bad review - learn to sift sift SIFT! You will be amazed at the results you get.
