You don’t need any baking skills to enjoy a fresh loaf of homemade bread hot from the oven! This no-knead, no-yeast 3-Ingredient Beer Bread is the quickest, easiest, and tastiest loaf that you will ever prepare.
Does your family love bread as much as mine does? My boys would be happy with nothing but fresh buttered bread and a glass of milk for dinner every night, so clearly this 3-Ingredient Beer Bread is a huge hit in our house!
Yes, that’s right — my kids love something called “Beer Bread.” But trust me — it doesn’t have a strong beer taste!
The rich, full-grain flavor is balanced by a little bit of sweetness, making it perfect with savory dishes like soup and chili, and equally tasty when toasted with butter and jam for breakfast.
The beer bread comes together with 3 basic ingredients, which you can keep in your pantry for any last-minute bread cravings!
You literally just stir together the self-rising flour, the room temperature beer, and the sugar and your work is done! Five minutes of prep, you guys!!!
The yeast in the beer helps the bread rise, and you don’t even have to knead the dough!
There’s nothing better than the smell of bread baking in the oven, is there?! You can create a cozy, comforting ambiance, sit back and relax, and enjoy a slice of warm bread with melted butter just a short time later. Basically, it’s heaven.
A loaf of my 3-Ingredient Beer Bread would be a perfect treat to share with your favorite teacher, neighbor, coworker, or relative this season. Homemade Christmas gifts are more flavorful, more affordable, and often more thoughtful than anything that you can buy in the store — and this bread is no exception.
Best of all, it’s easier to stir together this beer bread dough than it is to brave the local shopping mall during the month of December!
Whether you consider yourself a “baker” or not, this is one project that you can tackle. Trust me — this is coming from the girl who uses refrigerated cookie dough and boxed cake mix 90& of the time! But wow, this beer bread is so much better than anything that you could prepare from a package!
3-INGREDIENT BEER BREAD
3-Ingredient Beer Bread
Yield 1 loaf
3 cups self-rising flour
¼ cup sugar
1 (12 ounce) can of beer, at room temperature
Optional: I like to add ¼ teaspoon of salt to balance the taste of the sugar, but it’s not necessary for the rising process if you prefer to omit it
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together all of the ingredients until just combined.
Transfer dough to the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean).
