Keyword: Buttery Beer Bread
Servings: 1 loaf


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) beer (dark preferred, but light works as well)
  • 1 stick unsalted butter , melted


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan. (My preferred spray is Baker's Joy.)
  • Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Pour the beer into bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  • Pour half the melted butter into the bottom of the loaf pan. Add the batter to the pan, then pour the other half of the butter on top.
  • Bake on the center rack in the oven for 50 to 60 minutes, until the top is crispy golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve immediately or reheat in the microwave for 20 seconds.
