Yeast-Free Beer Bread? You’ll Love It Once You Have It

What’s this about beer bread?

We all love beer, even if we don’t drink it often, we may have had it in mussels or stews before. So, why not in bread? It is a distinct flavor, but extremely tasty.

To start, you need some flour, which can be self-raising flour for an easy process. However, you can also use other flours, like bread, wheat, pastry, or even gluten-free options, like almond or cassava. Remember, though, to add a leavening agent, which can be baking soda or baking powder.

Now, this recipe says it is yeast-free, and while there is no yeast needed to bake the bread, there is yeast in the beer used. Keep this in mind when you bake this bread, especially if you have a yeast allergy or intolerance.

Some good beers to use for this recipe include lagers, pilsners, or a heavy porter for a chocolate or coffee aftertaste. If you want to make it non-alcoholic, try using a 0% alcohol beer, as it will add the fizziness and flavor without the alcohol.

To sweeten, we recommend you use honey, as it mixes well with the beer and creates a unique taste. Yet, if that’s not for you, use other alternatives like molasses, maple syrup, or brown sugar. Simply make sure that the chosen sweetener is dissolved completely.

After your bread has begun to set, you can bake it for about 40 minutes, and the results will be magical. This yeast-free beer bread is a great addition to a meat stew, or for a roast beef sandwich.
