Simple Beer Bread

It is our opinion this recipe tastes just like a boxed mixed that is sold at in home parties.  This is an easy, very inexpensive clone for this beer bread. Why pay $5 a box for theirs when this will only cost a fraction to make?

If you don’t drink beer you can substitute a lemon-lime soda or even gingerale for the beer. I have known people to make loaf after loaf of this delicious bread.

It’s Simple Beer Bread

This bread tastes a lot like the Tastefully Simple brand according to my own personal opinion.   This bread mix costs a lot more when it is sold at a home party.

    We love the “It’s Simple Beer Bread recipe. I had a box of beer bread the other night and had the family. They had a fit over it. I always go to your sight for any recipe. This one taste just like Paula Dean’s Beer Bread in a box. You have such a talent. I am so glad I know you. Next time you need another taster, add me to the list.
