Did you all have a nice weekend? I enjoyed celebrating Bastille Day, but more importantly, my husband and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary on Saturday. It is truly amazing how quickly those years have gone by and I cannot imagine spending them with any one else. He is the love of my life and I am so grateful to share my life with him.
Today, I am participating in the Spiked Recipe Challenge put on by Carrie and Frugal Foodie Mama and Julie at This Gal Cooks.
The way it works every two months, there is an alcoholic ingredient that you must use in an original recipe. This month's ingredient is craft beer! I am a big fan of craft beer and to be honest, I am usually drinking it, not cooking with it. We enjoy going to beer tastings and festivals.
I have used craft beer in a crock pot before and it makes a great pot roast, but for this challenge I decided to make some beer bread.
Easy Beer Bread
2 ½ cups all purpose floure
½ cup brown sugar, packed
¼ cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 12 oz bottle or can of craft beer
Preheat oven to 375 °. Combine flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the center and add the melted butter and craft beer. I am using Magic Hat, which is one of my favorite beers.
Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake 45 - 50 minutes. Let cool before slicing.
This bread is a nice subtle, buttery, bread.
Have you cooked with craft beer before? What did you make?
Congrats on 28 years!! And the bread looks amazing - pinned it to bake later!
Thank you Samantha for your sweet comment!

Congratulations...28 years...that's amazing! I love this bread. I used to buy a mix to make beer bread from a company that went out of business. Now I can make my own 🙂 Thank you so much!!!
Thank you Lisa! It would be fun to try with different beers too!

Congratulations on 28 years of marriage! We'll be coming up on 20 next year. Time really does fly by, doesn't it?!
I've never cooked with beer at all, I think. This sounds (and looks) DELICIOUS! Maybe I ought to try it! --Lisa
Thank you Lisa! It was really good. I have to say that I would rather drink it though 🙂
I'm really not even sure I can handle looking a photos of this right now! I haven't had lunch yet and it's 3:00 pm. Amazing and happy anniversary!
Thank you Tamara - you are sweet!
Congrats! We just hit 10 this year. Time flies.
Thank you and congrats on 10! Isn't it amazing how fast it goes by?

I love a good beer bread!
Thank you for participating in the Spiked! American Craft Beer Recipe Challenge and Good Luck!!
Thank you Carrie! Love your challenges!
I want to try this!!! I am a terrible baker, but I love bread! Maybe this will be the one baking recipe I will be successful at? It doesn't look too difficult...
I've never cooked with beer before but that bread looks super yummy. I'm not much of a baker so I'm sure I'd mess up the recipe some how. lol
You are too funny! This one would be tough to mess up. 🙂
I had to stop by to see what you made =) And you just had to make beer bread.. Seriously a weakness of mine 😉 LOL
This recipe is amazing! I make it a few times a year now and finally just wrote it into my recipe book so that my kids can make it many years from now. Thank you!
Thank you Jamie!❤️
