3 Ingredient Beer Bread is crunchy and rustic on the outside while remaining moist and slightly sweet inside. It’s perfect served with chili or a hearty soup!
Carbs are my best friend. I can’t let ’em go, even when they maybe haven’t been so nice to me. They like to stick around sometimes, ya know?
But I love them nonetheless.
This Beer Bread is no exception, especially because it is SO. EASY.
I know I’ve posted easy recipes before, but I think this one takes the cake. With only three ingredients to mix and an oven to bake, you can throw it in and be done in a snap. Think of all the things you can get done while it’s baking and you’re not kneading and rolling and cutting…
Beer Bread is absolutely heaven with Chili because of its simplicity. Simmer the chili, throw the super quick and easy bread in the oven, then sit back and have a beer while you wait for your amazingly easy and delicious dinner come together.
But really, this bread. It has a hearty crunch and a moist, light inside that’s slightly sweet to balance the spice of chili.
Have kids? The alcohol bakes out!
I don’t actually really care for beer either (if you’re just tuning in – I’m a wine girl all the way), but that doesn’t stop me from spreading on some butter and chowing down on two, or three…or four… slices of this bread.
I’ve also played around with this recipe – adding melted butter to the top before cooking, mixing in diced jalapenos, adding a little honey. Honestly, they all worked, but didn’t add a WOW factor to this super simple and easy bread, so I thought we’d just leave it at super simple and easy for now.
