Did you know that you can make bread with a bottle of beer? If you didn’t, I’m here to tell you that you can, and it is SO good! You will actually feel like a professional bread maker. The beer gives the bread a nice, malty flavor that you really can’t get in any bread unless you use…BEER!
You might be wondering what kind of beer you can use to make this beer bread. I always recommend using an ale, but you can really use ANY beer, depending on the taste you want. I’ve had friends make this with Guinness, proving to you that anything is possible!
If you haven’t tried Everything But The Bagel Seasoning yet, you need to head to Trader Joe’s immediately and purchase their entire stock. It is the best seasoning and I use it for everything, from veggies, to meats, to my avocado toasts, the possibilities are endless! Other brands make Everything Seasoning, so just take a look online and see what you can find. And hey — if you can’t find it or don’t like the idea, leave the EBTB off, and you’ve got a nice honey beer bread instead.
Since I promised you an easy recipe, you can count on that. You need just a few simple ingredients.
All purpose flour: I created this recipe using regular, all purpose flour. It also works perfectly with gluten free flour!
Beer: Like I mentioned above, I recommend an ale, but you can use any beer that you like, even a non-alcoholic beer, if that floats your boat.
Honey or maple syrup: These two ingredients are interchangeable, so you can use what you have on hand. I always prefer making this bread with honey because I love that taste, but it really makes no difference.
Butter: I love a high quality butter, but feel free to use a vegan butter.
Everything But the Bagel Seasoning: Like I said above, hit up Trader Joe’s and stock up. If you can’t find any, look online for knock off versions..
Baking Powder: To make this beautiful loaf rise to the occasion
