5-ingredient Easy Beer Bread

Fresh, easy bread will never go out of style, and this bread is one of the simplest to make. This 5-Ingredient Beer bread is a \"quick bread,\" meaning that it doesn\'t require kneading, a specialty mixer, or yeast to make it! If you have a bowl and these ingredients, it takes just a couple of minutes to combine the batter and spread it into a pan to bake. Even better, it has all the texture and flavor of long-fermented bread if you use beer in the batter!

Don\'t have or use beer? You can also use any soda flavor, though we prefer ginger ale, Sprite, or root beer. The soda flavor doesn\'t change the bread taste dramatically, either. Add a tablespoon of your favorite Italian or French herbs for herb bread to the dry ingredients. Add 1/2 cup sugar to the dry ingredients for a sweeter breakfast-style bread. You can add vanilla, berries, and chocolate chips if you make the lovely variation. Have fun experimenting with this recipe! Your imagination only limits you!
