  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup beer
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 egg
  • 9x5 Bread Pan
I used Honey Weiss Beer and all-purpose flour.

Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients

Mix the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast in a large bowl till thoroughly mixed.

Flour can be all-purpose, or bread flour.

Step 3: Mix Beer and other ingredients.

Get a small sauce pan and warm the beer on the stove.

Mix beer, butter and honey on the stove (Do not boil, just get it warm to melt butter and mix well!)

DO NOT MIX EGG IN ON STOVE!

Step 4: Mix dry ingredents with warm beer and egg.

Crack the egg in with the dry ingredients, then while pouring warmed beer/butter/honey mixture in, stir till mixed and doughy.

It will get very thick!!


Step 5: After throughly mixed let raise!

After you mix everything together, let the doughy mix raise for 30 mins with a damp towel over the bowl.

Step 6: Kneed dough on floured surface

After 30 mins of rising flour a non stick surface (I kneaded directly on our granite counter top)

Be sure to flour the surface with dry flour first.

Then kneed dough add extra flour if needed, dough should be the constancy of you earlobe!

Step 7: Prepare bread pan and let rise for 20 mins again.

After kneading your dough, grease your bread pan (I used PAM cooking spray) and place dough in pan, then let rise again for 20 mins with a damp towel over the top.

Also pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 8: Cook Bread!

After rising again for 20 mins, place pan on center rack in over and cook for 30-35 mins till top is golden brown.

Just made this, it was really good. Second loaf, I reduced the honey to 2 tablespoons and increased the flour to 3 cups. Resulting loaf was not noticeably different in taste or texture from the first, but rose a little higher.

Nice recipe, thanks for sharing!
