  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 12 ounces beer room temperature
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter I prefer salted


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with oil or grease it with butter. Set aside.
  • Combine the flour, beer, and sugar in an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook.
  • Let the mixer knead the mixture until it pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Transfer to the greased loaf pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
  • Melt the butter & pour it over the bread.
  • Return the bread to the oven & continue baking for an additional 20 minutes. (it will bubble because of the butter. You may want to place it on a baking sheet in case the butter bubbles over the sides.)
  • Allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the loaf from the pan, slice and serve warm.


I typically use a commercial craft beer like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. But my mother in law always swore that the cheapest beer you can find is the best for this recipe. Use what you have on hand.
