2 Ingredient Beer Bread

Now I have seen this recipe with a few more ingredients, not many, but a few. However, in the interests of keeping everything simple, I decided that as long as it tasted nice, I wasn't going to add anything extra. It tastes great like this and is a quick filler/addition to rustle up when you need to pad something long as you have the grog to make it.

So here it is:

2 ingredient beer bread

A bottle or a can of the cheapest beer you can find. The two times I have made this I used a 375ml can and a 333ml bottle, so exact precision doesn't seem to matter.

2 cups of SR flour

*Put the flour in a bowl, tip the beer on top and mix with a spatula.
*No kneading required.
*Scraps the lot into a greased (I used butter) loaf tin and cook.
*It should look messy, not smooth like kneaded bread.
*I cooked on 160 degrees C until a skewer came out clean.
*It has a crusty top and a bready, slightly cakey consistency.
*Perfect for mopping juices of any kind or toasting.
* It's not the cheapest bread you could make, but it is quite cheap.
*It is also very filling and does not generate any plastic bag waste

Let me know how you go, or if you have any other uber simple recipes to share with others.


  1. I make flatbreads/ wraps with just plain or SR flour, water and seasoning and dry fry. They're fine and extremely frugal and you can just make what you need.
