This is based on a recipe from BH&G's cookbook, More Bread Machine Bounty. This makes a 1 1/2 pound loaf in your bread machine.
- 1 cup dark beer or 1 cup beer
- 2 tablespoons dark beer or 2 tablespoons beer
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 1⁄4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup bread flour
- 2 tablespoons honey or 2 tablespoons molasses
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
- Add ingredients to your bread machine in the order recommended by its manufacturer.
- Use a basic bread cycle.
This is an excellent beer bread. I used 2 tsp. bread machine yeast. Honey not molasses. It rose beautifully! Thanks for a great recipe! Jelly :)
This was a very easy recipe and turned out GREAT! I didn't have whole wheat flour and used all regular flour and I also upped the yeast (based on an earlier review) to an entire packet (2.25 tsp). This was really quite moist and not horribly dense (I don't like breads that turnout really dense and dryish). This will be a staple in my house now! :)
I was about to toss out some brown beer when it occurred to me to make beer bread. This recipe takes about 5 minutes to throw together, as long as you have all the ingredients (which I did). The loaf rose beautifully in my Zo breakmaker and came out very fluffy. (I followed the recipe exactly except for butter - which I replaced with oil.)
