Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Beer dinner 10-22-11 (10)-edit We don't drink much in our house.  I'm not against it or anything, we just don't do it often.  If I do have a drink, it's probably got rum in it - or maybe a glass of wine.  We would never drink beer.  Again, nothing against it, just don't like it. 

However, I happen to have a lot of beer currently in my house left over from several parties, so I've been looking for beer recipes to use up this beer.

I found this recipe and it's great!  It's very easy and uses ingredients that I almost always have on hand. 

Here's how you make it:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar (I add a bit more, about 1/2 cup- I know, your shocked)
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt and brown sugar. Pour in beer, stir until a stiff batter is formed. It may be necessary to mix dough with your hands. Scrape dough into prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.               
Just mix everything up and put it in a bread pan. It really couldn't be easier.

Wait a minute! No waiting for yeast to mix and bubble or dough to rise? It took me 5 hours to make bread for Thanksgiving! I am so gonna try this! I love homemade breads and bring on the hot butter!
