fresh baked bread on a cutting board
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 1 Loaf
Cook Time: 40 mins


  • 1 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 ¼ C honey
  • 1 bottle beer (12 oz)
  • 4 T melted butter


  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Slowly pour beer (it will foam) and honey into the flour mixture.
  • Next, stir 1/3 of the butter into the mixture until combined.
  • Lightly oil a cast iron bread loaf pan (9 x 5 x 3 in) and preheat for about 5 min in the 350° brick oven.
  • Take pan out of oven and pour 1/3 of the melted butter into the bottom of the pan.
  • Then add the batter to the pan in an even layer and pour the rest of the melted butter evenly over the top of the batter.
  • Bake in 350° brick oven for 40-50 min.
  • When top of bread is golden-brown, and a toothpick inserted into the middle of bread comes out clean, bread is done!
  • Serve while still warm!


  • I recommend warming the honey in the brick oven just a few seconds before pouring
    into the flour mixture. It will stir in so much easier!
  • Use your favorite beer for this recipe. I prefer a lite fruity beer!
  • The bread can be frozen and then thawed when ready to use at a later.
  • Toasting this bread in a toaster is one of my favorite ways to eat this bread!
