how to make honey beer bread

Preheat oven to 350°F. Make the batter by mixing the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Slowly add the beer and honey in and stir until combined.

Pour half of the melted butter into the bottom of the loaf pan. Brush it around the edges to grease the pan. Add the batter to the pan in an even layer, and then brush the rest of the butter onto the top of the batter.

Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven and set the pan on a cooling rack and allow it to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.

tips for making honey beer bread

You can use any beer you’d like! For this recipe I actually used Pabst Blue Ribbon because my husband had some laying around already. You can use an IPA for a stronger beer flavor, however the beer flavor will never really be that strong no matter the beer.

You can definitely freeze this bread. Freeze them in slices for an even easier way to get your honey beer bread fix!

Add in cheese! You can add a cup of cheese to this batter for some tasty cheesy beer bread.

    I make beer bread quite often, but make it with coconut sugar. We have bee hives so I will have to try it with honey sometime. Great idea!
