Flour + Beer = Bread {Only 2 Ingredients and No Kneading!}

Two ingredients can get you this:

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen and it was so easy.

Want to know how I did it?  It took 5 steps…

Step 1. Open a can of cheap beer (12 oz/330mL)

Step 2. Measure out 2 2/3 C of self-rising flour

Step 3. Mix flour and beer together till flour is just moistened

Step 4. Spoon mixture into a 9 inch loaf pan (lightly greased)

Step 5. Bake for 40-50 minutes at 375F/190C

That’s it!  Let it cool for 5 minutes on its side and then take it out of the pan.  So easy, and it yields a good, hearty, crusty bread that took a minimal amount of effort to make and yet still manages to look impressive.  People will “oooh” and “aaah” when you tell them it’s homemade.

The bread is great as is, but would probably benefit from just a bit of salt.  A variation that I’m keen to try: add 1 C shredded cheese + 1/2 C thinly sliced scallions + 1 1/2 tsp chicken seasoning/seasoned salt.

  1. Umm where the heck did you get this “recipe”?? 🙂 I’m “pinning” this on Pinterest and adding it to my “to-make” list! I’ve got a long, long, list; but I think this will jump to the top based on how easy it sounds!

  2. Yum this looks amazing! Homemade bread that’s that easy, I’m definitely going to have to try it! The problem will be wanting to eat the whole loaf myself though ha!

  3. Have you heard of Tastefully Simple? I use their beer bread mixes all the time but they are like $5 or $6 per mix. This would be so much easier!!! I’m totally trying this. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  4. Num! That picture makes me want to make this bread asap! I’ve heard of a 2-ingredient bread recipe using flour and ice cream (1.5 c flour + 2 c ice cream), but not beer… how interesting!
