sprite bread

I love, love, love beer bread.  But, I don't love beer.  As you can imagine, this poses a problem.  Since we don't like beer, we never buy it.  And since we never buy it, I never make beer bread. :(

 I finally came up with a solution.  I like Sprite...we buy Sprite...why not make Sprite bread?

I love making this bread to go alongside soups or salads, and I think it actually tastes better than beer bread.  You can technically use any soda (once I used Dr. Pepper to make it look more like whole, but we think Sprite is hands-down the best.

In a large bowl, mix self-rising flour, sugar, an egg, and some Sprite.  Notice how everything fizzes up when you add the Sprite in - it's like a science experiment!

Put the mixture into a greased loaf pan and top with a tablespoon of melted butter.

Bake it for 45 minutes and voila!

For a really hearty meal, enjoy it with a large bowl of chili.  It's the perfect thing to warm up a cool night or to fill you up when you don't have much time for cooking.

Sprite Bread
  • 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 3 T. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 12 oz. Sprite
  • 1 T. butter, melted

Mix flour, sugar, egg, and Sprite; pour into greased loaf pan.  Pour butter over top of batter.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, or until top is cracked and golden.


  1. Made this and it is very good.

  2. Looks good! Not to mention quick to throw together!

  3. No yeast? won't it turn out cakey? am just wondering cos I'd like to try this and wouldn't want to be disappointed when it doesn't come out bread-like.

    1. Like most quick breads, this one has a more crumbly texture (not cakey, though). You can slice it and slather it with butter, but I wouldn't recommend it for sandwiches. I think it's best when served as a side with soup or salad or slathered with butter and jam in the morning. Just BE SURE to use self-rising flour, and it will be bread enough!

  4. It was a lot lighter than I thought it would be. Loved it!
    I wonder if it would work to put a little more sugar and add cinnamon? I'm going to give it a try.

  5. Just made it. It's wonderful, and the easiest thing I have ever baked. It's a cross between bread and cake. The top is like a biscuit but the rest has a cakelike texture. Very moist, yeasty, so very yummy.

    Next time I'll try a bit of salt and maybe herbs.

  6. Do you think regular flour with baking powder work? Also, 7-Up instead of Sprite?
