  • “My family has been making this exact recipe for a decade.It is an huge hit and very versatile!You can add green chiles, fresh herbs, cheeses, or combine with other batters like corn bread.LOVE LOVE LOVE”

  • “Can’t get any easier than this, and great tasting bread!!Very dense with a nice crispy crust.I used recipe #5274 for the flour and baked in 3 mini loaf pans.Great served with chili, great toasted with butter – thanks for sharing the recipe!Made for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011”

  • “I keep trying to make this bread but we always only keep really hoppy beer in the house.I bet this is good with bud light or with another lighter beer, but don’t try it with an ESB or an IPA!”

  • “I found this recipe in an old Southern Living and made it last weekend. Great bread and I know bread! Great crust on this loaf and tender inside. I especially liked it toasted with butter. So quick and easy to make. I used Negra Modelo in this recipe – a dark beer from Mexico.”

  • “It it great. I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose (made into self rising) and Splenda. But it worked wonderfully!”

  • “This goes well with the sweet and sour beans!!!”

  • “Good.This is a really easy and tasty recipe for a quick bread.Per some other reviewers I used a touch less sugar (2 tablespoons) and added fresh pressed garlic and herbs before baking.Thank you for the post CandyCook.I’ll make this one many times to come!”

  • “I got this recipe from my dad and have made it a bunch of times. My kids love it, I love it — what’s not to love? It’s especially yummy made into a cheese sandwich with sharp chedder!”

  • “01/14/09:This turned out great! This is comparable to Tastefully Simple’s white bread and at a small fraction of the cost. I had to make the self-rising flour (3 c {minus 2 T} all purpose flour + 1 1/2 t salt + 4 1/2 tsp baking powder) from a recipe found at allrecipes.com. Please note that I used a total of 3 c flour, not 3 c + additions. Thank you for a wonderful, easy and fast soda bread recipe. 01/20/09: Today I decided to add one egg as the batter has always been a little dry. The bread had to bake a few minutes longer, but it rose higher and tasted better. 01/25/09: Today I erred and did not remove the 2 T flour. Big mistake as it didn’t rise as high! 03/06/09–THE FINAL REVIEW!: I’ve since stuck with the formula of adding two eggs to this bread, with fantastic results (and you don’t have to worry about removing the 2 T flour). I let it rise for 5 minutes in a 200F oven, pull it out and heat the oven. VARIATION: 1/2 tablespoon of dried basil and 1/4 cup freshly ground parmesan added to the batter was delicious! THANK YOU, THANK YOU; we no longer buy bread!”

  • “Oh my goodness, thank you. I was searching for a recipe to help me use up a keg of bud leftover from the 4th of July. This bread is really fantastic, easy, and delicious. 5 stars is not enough. Pouring butter over the top is a must.”

  • “I love this recipe! Instead of Bud beer, I used Miller High Life.”

  • “I make mine also with 1/2 C. sugar, since we like this bread sweeter.This is a great bread that everyone should try. Fast and easy.”

  • “This was quite good. Even better when you realize you’re having beer for breakfast! We don’t drink American beers, but our darker imports worked just as well. You can’t get an easier bread recipe than this.”

  • “This was definitely easy, and quite tasty. I’ve been having a slice for breakfast all week. I unfortunately did not have any self-rising flour, but I did some research, and, in case anyone else finds themselves in the same predicament, you can make your own by adding 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt for each cup of regular flour. I used that, and it appears to have worked.”

  • “Used Sam Adams Boston Lager.sub. 1tbs of molasses for 1tbs of sugar. Easy and tasty. Can’t go wrong.”

  • “I enjoyed this bread which can be put together in just minutes. I was expecting it to look a little darker/browner and have a strong flavor. Instead this bread is very mild and sweet. You can not tell it was made with beer.”

  • “This was a very good bread.I like how quick this is to put together and get on the table.I love working with yeast but this is nice when you want a good quick bread. Thanks for posting!!”

  • “This bread is so yummy!I first found the recipe in a magazine, except that it didn’t have sugar in the recipe.I have always left the sugar out, and we really like it.I think you can taste the beer flavor a little better that way.Very simple and quick, and definitely better than buying breads to eat with dinner.:)”

  • “Great loaf, and so easy to make….I threw in a handful or so of raisins, and the effect was wonderful….!”
