Rosemary Bread made Easy

**Updated 03/29/21

Bread making has never been my strong suit. With the exception of Homemade Biscuits, of course. I have tried every bread recipe and they just never come out like what you can buy in a bakery.

Over the years, I have seen a number of recipes using Beer to help the bread rise. After many attempts (and failures, lol) I have perfected the easy, savory bread my bread loving heart has always desired. Made with simple ingredients, self rising flour and beer, this bread can be modified to fit any tastes. The cheeses and rosemary are a personal Buttered Home Favorite. So let’s tell you how to make it!

How to make Rosemary Beer Bread

Rosemary Beer Bread is really a quick mix it up and go recipe. You simply add all of your dry ingredients and cheese and seasonings, sift with a whisk and mix in your room temperature Beer. That’s it!

~ Ingredients ~

  • 2 and 1/2 cups Self Rising Flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 12 oz Room temperature Beer
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated fine
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated

~ Method ~

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large bowl, add flour, sugar, salt, rosemary and cheeses. Use a whisk to sift together. Slowly pour in beer.
  2. Mix well just until combined. Do not over mix. Pour into a lightly greased loaf pan.
  3. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes and remove and allow to continue to cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!

Here, you will find many recipes that you can totally make your own. We encourage you to experiment with cooking and this is a pretty tasty way to do it!

Tips and Tricks

What can I substitute for Beer?

I get this question all of the time. If you wanted a dark bread, you could use root beer. I have used tonic water before. You really need the yeasty-ness of the beer to enhance the flavor of the bread. If you are watching your alcohol intake, simply use a non alcoholic beer for best results.

Can I use a different kind of cheese or herbs?

Yes! Like all of our recipes, they are easily customizable. We just want you cooking. If bread is not your thing, like mine, this is a very easy one you can take and make all kinds of creations with. It is also very good with seasonal cheeses or sweet ones too!

Would this work as muffins?

It sure would! You would just need to start checking them at half of the cook time for doneness. After then, if not ready, check every 5 minutes!
