Homemade Beer Bread Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 3 cups all-purpose or white-whole wheat flour
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2½ T honey
  • 1 can beer
  • 2 T + 3 T unsalted butter, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Butter the sides of a 9"x5"x3" loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  4. Heat the honey in the microwave for a few seconds until runny.
  5. Add the beer and the honey to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just mixed and most of the big lumps are gone. DO NOT OVERMIX!
  6. Pour 2 T of the melted butter on top of the parchment paper. Tilt the pan slightly to spread the butter (try not to let it go over the sides of the paper)
  7. Spoon the batter in to the pan, getting it as even as possible.
  8. Pour the remaining 3 T melted butter over the batter, using a pastry brush to spread it evenly if needed.
  9. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Remove from oven.
  11. Immediately use a sharp knife to ensure that the bread isn't sticking to the sides of the pan.
  12. Let cool for 5 - 10 minutes, then remove bread from pan and let cool on a cooling rack
