This is the easiest bread recipe you’ll ever find. Just like the name suggests, its super quick and easy to make. It’s a one bowl recipe, no fuss, no mess. I loved using Sam Adams because of its rich, bold flavor. You can use other beer brands that suit your taste.
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 bottle (12 ounces) beer, at room temperature
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Add the beer all at once, mixing as little as possible; the batter should be lumpy.
Pour the batter into a 9-x-5-x-3-inch loaf pan and brush with the melted butter. Bake in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean. Turn out onto a rack to cool.
OPTIONAL: Sprinkle with shredded/ grated cheddar cheese on top.
VARIATIONS: 1. Mix italian seasonings or herbs and parmesan cheese into the batter for a scrumptious savory bread. Great with any pasta dish!
2. Add carbonated juice or soda instead of beer. Add nuts or dried cranberries to make into muffins or breakfast bread.
2. Substitute beer with 16oz can of creamed corn and 1/2 cup vegetable oil to make yummy cornbread.
