Cracked Out Beer Bread


If you follow my blog, you know I love to "crack out" everything! This time I decided to "crack out" beer bread.  This is so simple and super delicious. You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry right now.  The key to this bread is sifting the flour. It really does make a difference. Sifting the flour helps keep the bread light and airy.

I used a Michelob Ultra for the beer since that was what was in the fridge. Feel free to use any beer you like. I couldn't taste the beer once the bread was cooked. We both loved this. This bread is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. It tastes great slathered with some butter.  Give it a try tonight!

1/2 cup butter melted, divided

Preheat oven to 375.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, beer, cheese, Ranch mix, bacon and 1/4 cup melted butter.  Pour into lightly greased loaf pan.  Pour remaining melted butter over bread.

  1. Looks yummy! Did you know you can buy a 16 oz jar of Ranch seasoning and salad dressing mix at Sams? No more packets around here :-)

  3. Would you tell me what size loaf pan to use? I have 6 bottles of beer that are too stout for my hubs taste, and this would be a good way to use them up. I want to buy aluminum loaf pans to give away. Also, do you think I could cheat by using Oscar Meyer cooked bacon crumbles in the sack, instead of frying my own? Thank you !!

  9. Looks great! Do you sift the flour before or after measuring it? I assume after, but I want to make sure.

  12. Anita - I used all-purpose flour. If you use self-rising omit the baking powder and salt.
