Beer Bread (no yeast)

Beer Bread

5 from 2 reviews

This no yeast, super simple beer bread will no doubt become your favourite bread to go along side your winter meals! It’s full of flavour, crisp on the outside and chewy and soft on the inside. I used Guinness beer which gave a dark rich molasses flavour. I highly recommend using a stout for a richer flavour moving into the cooler winter days.
