Whole Wheat Beer Bread

For this week, we are thinking of exploring something different from the ordinary kind of bread. On top of that, we are looking for a bread recipe with simple ingredients and at the same time it can be prepared in a very short time. This lead us to discovering the whole wheat beer bread from Since we have some beer in the fridge in preparation for the cold winter, we do not mind using a can for this recipe. It sounds interesting and best of all it can be ready in less than an hour.

  • 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
  • 1 (355 ml) can or bottle beer
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt and brown sugar.
  3. Pour in beer, stir until a stiff batter is formed. It may be necessary to mix dough with your hands.
  4. Place dough into prepared greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
  5. Put in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.
Overall, the bread turns out good. We guess the use of beer kind of substitute the yeast that usually exists in bread. However, the size of the bread may not be suitable to be used as a sandwich bread. Anyhow , it is good to go on its own.
