I made a very similar version to this recipe. The only difference was more butter. I agree it was a little too sweet for me, but very good. I would cut the sugar in half and add a pinch of salt. You NEED TO SIFT THE FLOUR... and if you don't use self-rising flour, add 3 teaspoons of baking powder. You can pour the melted butter on top when you first put it in. I baked for exactly 60 minutes. :) Read More

I can't figure out what I did wrong. I've made this before and it turned out perfect. This time it became a dense rock. I tried to make two loafs each with a different beer and I was very careful not to over mix. Each one turned out inedible. I'm sure it's not the recipe that was wrong. I just don't know what mistake I made. Read More

This was very good! It was a bit on the sweet side, but it went really well with our potato soup tonight. I did use the optional butter, and I suggest doing the same, as it gave the bread a nice, slightly salty flavor that we really enjoyed. Very simple...I would make this again! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

This is the easiest and tastiest bread I have ever made. I used Pear Cider Beer from Woodchuck and it is really yummy. The crust is like eating candy! Before baking I suggest you cover the pan while your oven is warming up. It gives the bread a chance to rise a little and it comes out perfectly every time! Read More

I made four loaves of this today and the recipe was a complete success! I followed the recipe only changing the amount of sugar from 1/2 cup to 1/3 cup. Also, I poured 3 Tbsp. melted butter over the unbaked loaf and baked at 350° F for 47 minutes. Absolutely perfect and my house smelled SO good! For the remaining three loaves I followed the recipe reducing the sugar to 2 Tbsp, adding 2 Tbsp of Italian herbs seasoning (store brand) and just a pinch of salt. I once again poured 3 Tbsp. melted butter over the unbaked loaf and set to bake at 350° F for 40 minutes. At this point I opened the oven to add 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese to the top of the loaf, then returning to bake another 7 minutes until golden brown on top. This bread is just simply delicious any way that it is made. I took two loaves to my sister's birthday party and the other two went to in-laws house. It was delicious with our supper! I can't wait to make this again to go with chili when cooler weather arrives! First chilly day we get, I'll be baking this bread! Thank you, Cassie for sharing your recipe! Tammy ?? Read More

Very yummy but just a little to sweet for my liking. I'll cut the sugar in half next time. Read More

I’m super happy with this recipe. I did not have self rising flour so made my own. It did rise beautifully and tastes amazing. I think I’ll bake it a little longer next time, with using a lighter color beer (Corona). Darker beer tends to bake a darker bread. Read More

I make this bread for my bf all the time. He loves it (and me, when I make it for him! ;). He likes the loaf to be more dense, like a pound cake, so I substitute one cup of all-purpose organic unbleached flour for the self-rising flour. He has no idea this recipe only take me about 3 min. to prepare! Read More

S.I.M.P.L.E. You gotta love recipes like this! I also added a little salt, cut the sugar in half and used baking powder with my all purpose flour. Followed one reviewer's suggestion to let it sit for 5-10 min before baking. Turned out great! Toasted it later and served with garlic salt in butter! Yum, yum! Family loved it! Read More
