Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

It’s so hot in Missouri right now that it’s like winter in reverse! Once I got home from church I decided it was too hot to leave the house even to go grocery shopping so we’d just have to get by with what food we already had in the house! Soooooooo, I decided to make a loaf of beer bread to have with fresh sliced tomatoes, havarti cheese with dill, and sliced avocado. Beer breads are so easy to make when you’re craving warm homemade taste but don’t have time to go through the rising process that regular yeast breads need. This bread will vary in its taste based on the beer you use. I’ve made it with Bud Light, Samuel Adams and Guinness. My favorite was the Samuel Adams. It made a nice, flavorful loaf without any bitterness. This recipe combines the yeast that’s in beer with a boost from some baking powder to give you the flavor and yumminess of a yeast bread. It’s great with soup, stew, or a nice salad. This one is made with half whole wheat flour so you even get a little fiber! Enjoy!!

1 1/2 C. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 C. whole wheat flour
4 1/2 t. baking powder
1 1/2 t. salt
1/3 C. brown sugar
1 – 12 oz. bottle or can of beer at room temperature

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 X 5 inch loaf pan.
2. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Pour in the beer and stir until a stiff batter is formed. Scrape bowl into the loaf pan and make sure its spread evenly in the pan.
3. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
