I love living in Oregon. One of the cool things about where I live besides breathing fresh air, drinking clean water, tall mountains and trees is that Oregon has lots of breweries. And seriously good breweries… Hand crafted IPA’s, wheats, amber ales, darks, porters, lagers and the list goes on. I can think of at least 5 microbreweries within a 10 mile radius from my home.
What I have learned is that a really good beer makes a really good beer bread. The problem is making that choice to sacrifice a couple of your favorite beers for baking bread. My Whole Wheat Beer Bread is so good that you really don’t have to think too long and hard about making that tough decision. My Whole Wheat Beer Bread is ridiculously easy to make and tastes absolutely wonderful. Makes 1 tasty loaf. Enjoy! Tessa
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 cups beer (20 ounces)
- 1 Tbs olive oil for drizzling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 X 5 pan. Mix all ingredients except the olive oil in a large bowl, mixing dry ingredients first then adding the beer. The batter will look like really thick pancake batter. Add mixture to the baking pan and drizzle the top lightly with olive oil. Bake 60 t0 70 minutes until a beautiful golden brown. Remove from oven and place on wire racks to cool. Slice and serve with sweet cream butter.
