Ridiculously Easy Beer Bread


This recipe literally took me 2 minutes to throw together yesterday after work.  My friend over at Simply Life made it with pumpkin beer, but I didn't have that, so I worked with what I had.  It turned out beautifully, and is so moist.  I made a sandwich with it today.

I'm iffy about making breads - yeast and I don't always get along. This one looks super simple though...and add beer? Sold :)

The easiest bread was the kind that I just threw into the bread maker. :) Turned out pretty good too. It was a simple garlic rosemary loaf!

I love making my own bread. I didn't at all in the summer but I'm hoping to do it once a week or so in the winter!

Hee hee I've made your oatmeal soda bread before! I've also made beer bread a long time ago, but with Parm and bacon and herbs. I think you should try that. :-)

I think you may have created a monster with this one -- just showed the recipe to my husband and he's VERY interested! I've yet to make bread, but this sounds like a good, simple introduction. And I have plenty of pumpkin beer in the fridge!

I've used a bread machine but never made bread like you made. I'd like to give it a try some time.

Ooooh that sounds good. I don't like beer but for some reason I love beer bread! My Mom makes one (with yeast) that is white and fluffy... I'm going to have to make it on the blog soon to share.
