Beer & Bread = Heaven


Will has been making A TON of  beer lately (and I admit that most have been super good) and has asked me to start cooking with his tasty creations.  I found a beer bread recipe on Annie’s Eats and it looks fantastic and easy.  The other two recipes are from Tasty Kitchen and they look equally delicious!  I plan on making one of these recipes soon and I will let you know how it goes.


Cheesy Beer Bread

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 12 oz. beer
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted




Preheat oven to 350°.  Lightly grease a 9×5” loaf pan.


In a large bowl, combine flours, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and garlic powder.  Whisk to combine well. Add cheese and whisk to combine.  Slowly add beer to dry ingredients and stir lightly until just combined, and all ingredients are completely moistened.  Place into a prepared loaf pan and pour melted butter over the top.  Place in the oven and bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Bacon & Blue Cheese Beer Bread

* by CarolinaHeartStrings @ TastyKitchen

  • 3 cups SELF RISING Flour, Unsifted
  • 3 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 bottle (12 Oz. Bottle) Beer (The Darker, The Better)
  • ⅓ cups Blue Cheese, Crumbled
  • ⅓ cups Bacon, Finely Crumbled
  • ½ sticks Margarine, Melted




Mix all ingredients except melted margarine. Bake at 350 degrees in a loaf pan for 50 minutes. Remove and brush with melted margarine. Bake 10 more minutes.


Let cool well before cutting, otherwise it is prone to being crumbly.



Whole Wheat Beer Bread

* by lilymittens @ TastyKitchen

  • 3 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 12 ounces, fluid Beer




Preheat oven to 375°.  Whisk all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.  Spray a large loaf pan with pan spray.  Pour beer into dry mixture and stir until combined (The dough will be pretty thick and sticky).  Transfer dough into bread pan (You may need to spread it out a little bit with your hands) and bake for 1 hour.


You can let this cool in the pan or you can take it out after about 10 minutes.  It’s very good the next day toasted with peach jam.
