The Fall bug has officially bit me. I have so much energy for Fall fun it is a little crazy. I was so excited to start baking this weekend and I decided the Honey Beer Bread from Gimme Some Oven was going to be my first project from my Fall Bucket List. I love the smell of baking bread and since I was making a bunch of other things I thought this bread was perfect to try since there was no “yeast” and rise times. This was a mix, pour, bake type of bread. Please note that different beers will end in different results so if you have issues try a different beer.
Ingredients: 3 cups all-purpose flour ~ 2 Tbsp. sugar ~ 1 Tbsp. baking powder ~1 tsp. salt ~ 2 Tbsp. honey ~ 1 _12oz) bottle beer (I used Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy) ~ 1 Stick of Butter, melted ~ Herb Mix: 1 Tsp Basil ~ 1 Tsp Rosemary ~ 1 Tsp Dill ~ 1 Tsp Sage
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan with Pam cooking spray or butter. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and herbs.
Using a wooden spoon, stir the beer and honey into the dry ingredients until just mixed. (Warm the honey in the microwave for about 20 seconds so its easier to stir in!)
Pour half the melted butter into the loaf pan. Then spoon the batter into the pan, and pour the rest of the butter on top of the batter.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until top is golden brown and a toothpick/knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serve immediately.
I originally tried a piece with butter but it wasn’t as good as with a little EVOO and some onion powder mixed together. I also made a version of this bread with 2-1/2 TBSP of Cinnamon and replaced the 2 TBSP Sugar with 1/2 cup of sugar. All other ingredients were the same.
I will be making all sorts of homemade bread this fall but this one was a different one than others I have tried and is worth a try!
Linking up with Jessica and Ashley.
You can make bread that doesn’t contain yeast?! I never knew that! The idea of yeast terrifies me, even though I am going to attempt to make pizza dough one day soon (I hope, ha). Thanks for linking up!
The beer contains yeast so it is a work around all the waiting and rising and such! Don’t let yeast frighten you! I use a heating pad to help yeast rise whenever I am in a time crunch or if the weather is a little off. There is nothing quite like homemade bread, and I try not to eat bread so you know I mean business! 😉

um, please send it ALL to my house mmmmkay?! thanks
You got it!! 🙂
oh my gosh. Yum. I have eaten the beer bread from Tastefully Simple and it is beyond yummy so I am excited to have a recipe where I can make my own. thanks, lady
This is very similar and I liked how fluffy it came out! So good with an oil dip too!
Erin @ The Party Girl's Guide says

Megan Proctor says
I’ve never tried to make homemade bread, but I will have to try this recipe!
It is really good and is such a moist bread! Hope you like it!
Jessica @ Wonder What's Next says
Two things I love — beer and bread! Ha!! I’m like you — so much more likely to make bread if I don’t have to wait hours for it to rise!
Haha! Perfect combo then! I love a quick bread! A proofed bread is good when you have time but a quick rising bread I will take any day!
Yum. It looks like fluffy and moist – win win in my books!
It was really fluffy, more than I thought it would be! Thanks!

The heating pad to help with bread rising is brilliant~!!! Great tip~!!!
It really helps. I had a really hard time with one dough taking forever to rise before i learned that trick! Really helps move things along!
Judy Joy says
Yes…probably alot more cost effective than my method…oven on …oven off…then put the pan to the back of the stove where it is warm~!! love..love..love that idea..much more even heat too!!Thanks JJ
Oh yes, much easier and even heat. You are very welcome! Enjoy!
