How to Make 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Beer Bread
I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post, but here's a quick version.
- Stir the ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- Pour the bread batter to a prepared loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven
- Use a toothpick or a cake tester to check that it is done.
- Cool on a wire rack
Preparation and Storage
Make Ahead: While you can rest your Bisquick Pumpkin Beer Bread dough in the fridge for an hour or two before baking, it’s best to make it to order.
Storage: After waiting for the bread to cool, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or foil and store it at room temperature in an airtight container or Ziploc bag for up to two days.
Freezing/How to Freeze: Leftovers wrapped in foil or plastic and stored in an airtight, freezer-safe container or bag will remain good in the freezer for up to three months.
How to Reheat: Thaw any leftover Pumpkin Beer Bread at room temperature until sliceable.
Substitutions: Feel free to use any pumpkin beer you enjoy! You can even visit your local liquor store with a solid craft beer selection if you need inspiration. Additionally, you can use brown sugar instead of white sugar if you prefer warmer-flavored beer bread.
Vegetarian Option + Vegan Option: Plant-based eaters rejoice - this three-ingredient Pumpkin Beer Bread recipe is vegetarian and vegan-friendly!
Gluten-Free: This recipe is gluten-free if you use Bisquick’s Gluten-Free mix and gluten-free pumpkin beer.
Alcohol-Free Option: Use a non-alcoholic pumpkin beer to make this recipe alcohol-free. We are working on a pumpkin beer bread made with canned pumpkin and a spice cake mix for those who do not want beer in their bread.
Smaller Serving Size + Larger Group/More Servings: The written recipe yields 12 servings. Scale it down for a smaller loaf, and double it per extra loaf you want to bake.
Make it Spicy: Add pumpkin pie spice to the bread dough for a fall beer bread that oozes the taste of the season in every slice.
Sugar-Free: The written recipe contains 8 grams of sugar per serving. Use a sugar-free sugar alternative to lower the sugar content. Bisquick has no sugar-free variety, but you can use their Heart Smart mix to decrease the sugar content further.
Tips for the Best 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Beer Bread
- Grease your bread pan so the bread dough does not stick. This step is essential, even if you have a non-stick pan since it preserves the surface of your bread pan.
- You can use a handheld mixer or easily mix this with a wooden spoon. Just scrape the sides to get all the dry bits into the mix.
- Let the loaf cool before slicing.
- This bread tastes great with some butter or honey drizzled over it.
