Green Beer Bread Recipe – Easy St Patrick’s Day Baking

Green Beer Bread Recipe

I have no idea who first started the trend of serving green beer on St. Patrick’s Day, but I’m sure the food coloring industry appreciates it!  Following along the lines of this tradition I have taken one of my favorite beer bread recipes to make a St. Patrick’s Day version with a Green Beer Bread Recipe.  It’s delicious served all by itself, with your favorite spread, or cut into cubes to serve with a spinach dip.

Oh – and as far as the beer in the batter, the alcohol all burns off during baking so it’s fine for kids or non-drinkers to eat.  But, if you don’t have beer in your fridge and don’t want to buy some just for this recipe, you can substitute a can of lemon lime soda (like Sprite or 7Up) and it should still turn out just fine.

4 1/2 tsp. baking powder
