Handmade Holiday – Beer Bread

I really struggled with trying to find the perfect handmade gift for the men on my list this year. I thought something in a mason jar may be a cool way to go.

After doing some research, I found this great recipe for Beer Bread.

Very simple recipe. Just add all the ingredients to the mason jars.

Brown sugar, corn meal, Parmesan cheese, minced onion, crushed red pepper, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Seal up the jars. Now all your guy has to do is add 12 ounces of beer. I tested the recipe earlier this week.

I used a beer with way too much hops. I recommend using a light beer.

I made cute direction cards to match. I was sure to add a decorative cover for the jars…and here you go.

They are so cute. I am very happy with how they came out. Another great handmade holiday gift.

    LOL! Thank you. Yes, it was a lot…once I got started I had to make 3 more trips to the store to get enough ingredients. I kept running out of one thing or another! But in the end, they came out nice.

    Awesome! We could use these and add a bottle of the hubby’s homebrew to the gift. Can’t wait to try this!

    Thanks so much for linking to my beer bread in a jar recipe. LOVE your post, and all the images. The gift cards are a great touch. You really took the idea to the next level. Thanks again for the link. Much appreciated. (Just found out about it, or I would have stopped by sooner!)

    This is post is from a few years ago, but I was curious if you refrigerated your product or if it was shelf stable as is with the parmesan cheese in it. Thanks!!

    Great question Heather! I never even thought of the Parmesan cheese being a problem. I did not refrigerate them. Best of luck and thanks so much for visiting!
