Beer Bread

Submitted by Michele Miller, Rock Energy Cooperative
Course Breads and Rolls


  • 5 T. sugar
  • 3 c. self-rising flour (or 3 c. all-purpose flour, 1-1/2 t. salt, 4-1/2 t. baking powder)
  • 1 12-oz. can beer (I used hard cider)
  • 1 stick butter


  • Mix sugar, flour and beer and put in a greased loaf pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
  • Melt butter and pour over baked bread.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for another 15 minutes.


This makes a very dense, yeasty-flavored bread with a nice crust.
