You won't believe how easy it is to make this Vegan Beer Bread.
I'm finally sharing one of my favorite bread recipes with you! I love making homemade bread and rolls, but sometimes I just don't have the time to let the bread dough rise. With vegan beer bread, you don't have to let the dough rise. This saves so much time.
The yeast in the beer causes the bread to rise, just like if you were using dry active yeast.
You can use your favorite beer to make this Vegan Beer Bread. I have made this recipe with all different types of beer. The bread will take on some of the flavors in the beer.
To balance out the flavors in the bread, I like to add cane sugar to the dough. Sometimes beer can be a little bit bitter and the sugar helps to balances the flavors out. I have found that 3 tablespoons is the perfect amount of sugar.
I really love the how the top of the bread gets all crunchy. Adding melted vegan butter to the bottom of the pan and top of the dough helps to create a crunchy top.
There is nothing better than freshly-baked, warm bread pulled straight from the oven. It is the best.
I love serving this Vegan Beer Bread with soup, especially during the colder months. This bread goes really well with my Potato and Cabbage Soup!
