Honey Beer Bread


Well the Holidays are rolling in with Thanksgiving just around the corner then Christmas before we know it! And we all know once winter hits it’s all about the savory stews, soups, and delicious casseroles with hearty bread to go with it that warm your soul :). An even better ingredient to use in all these things is beer! It adds a nice flavor that goes along with these winter months. I found this beer bread recipe a couple years ago and it is a winner! It’s simple and comes together very fast. Once it’s done its chewy and dense with a wonderful aftertaste of whatever beer you choose to use! I recommend using a full flavor beer rather than a light version. The couple of times I have made it I have used Dogfish Head, Harpoon’s Winter Warmer, Ten Penny Ale, or any sort of flavored beer you want to come out in the bread.

Honey Beer bread

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

4 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

1 bottle 12 ounce beer

5 tablespoons of melted butter


Preheat oven- 350

Serves 8-10

Preheat and turn oven on.  Grease and lightly flour a 9x5x3  inch bread pan

In a medium bowl sift together flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside

Microwave the butter until melted. After the butter is melted, microwave the honey for ten seconds to let it become runnier.

Take your greased bread pan and pour half the butter at the bottom of your pan.

Slowly pour your beer and honey or maple syrup into the flour mixture, stir with wooden spoon until just combined. Pour mixture into pan and pour rest of the butter on top of the loaf.

Bake for 50 minutes or until top is golden brown. Top with butter and honey and indulge in this yummy bread!
