Buttery Craft Beer Bread

Sharing is caring!

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 1/2 cups all purpose floure

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1/4 cup butter, melted

2 tablespoons white sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 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.

Pouring Magic Hat Craft Beer

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?

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

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...
