Spicy Beer Bread

 I have been looking for the perfect Beer Bread recipe for a long time! I definitely found it with this next recipe! I love how easy this is to make with just a few simple ingredients! This bread is nice and hearty with a slightly sweet and slightly spicy touch! The beer flavor comes through perfectly!
This would also be amazing with some shredded cheddar cheese mixed into the batter or even just sprinkled on top! This recipe makes one loaf, but I think I'll have to double it from now on because one loaf disappears too quickly!
This recipe is from a fellow member named Paula. I tweaked it slightly to give it a little more spiciness! I'll show my changes in red.

Spicy Beer Bread
Spicy Beer Bread

3 cups flour
1 tsp. kosher salt
4 1/2 tsp. baking powder
6 Tbls. sugar
12 oz. beer - I used 10 oz. and sipped the other 2 oz.
4 Tbls. Herdez Tomatillo Verde Cooking Sauce - I used 8 Tbls.
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease one loaf pan and place on a cookie sheet.
Mix together all the ingredients except for the melted butter.
Do not over mix. Just mix enough to combine it well.
Lumps are okay.
Pour into the greased loaf pan and pour the melted butter ontop.
Bake on center rack for 55-60 minutes.
You need to bake it until completely cooked through because this is a dense batter.
So let it brown really well or else the middle may still be slightly raw.
When done baking remove from oven and let cool completely before slicing.
I usually wait about 30 minutes.
Then try not to eat the entire loaf all by yourself like I did!

  1. Oh Lillian, you are such a girl after my own heart! I do the SAME thing, I make all sorts of beer bread, not using the whole can of beer and sipping the rest too! I've done beer bread with Franks Rooster Sauce (hot Louisianna sauce) and it comes out wonderful, I'll look for this particular brand of spicy sauce you listed in your recipe. Anything hot and spicy on the menu goes over BIG TIME in my house! Thank you for working so hard and bringing us some good stuff on this blog!

    1. Oh! Thank you so much Angela! And I love your hot sauce idea! I'm hooked on Sriracha Rooster sauce lately, so maybe I'll try it with that one time! Please come back and let me know what you think of this bread! Thanks again for your sweet comment! =D

  2. Did you slather butter all over your thick slice of bread? This looks very good, and I, like you, love to find or make recipes with unusual ingredients, witness the Luau Ribs!

    1., I just ate it straight out of the pan plain! The butter on top, before it's baked, is plenty for me! Yes, those ribs were so unusual and soooo good! Thanks! =D

  3. Sounds like something to try with a seafood casserole.

    One question: If you use the remaining 2 oz. of beer, does the bread come out lighter?

    1. Hi Anita! I don't think the bread will be lighter if you use 12 oz of beer instead of 10. I hope you will try this! Thanks for checking it out! =D
