Honey Wheat Beer Bread

"From the Paula Deen magazine. This is a hearty slightly sweet beer bread. I have made with the honey wheat beer called for as well as regular beer and flavored beers. The baked bread may be frozen for later use. If you like, the dry ingredients can also be made into a mix and labeled with instructions for later use."

    This is my recipe! Submitted it to Paula Deen magazine several years ago. It was adapted from my German great grandmother's recipe made using all white flour. I like the nuttiness wheat flour adds to it. The magazine didn't publish this tip, but I recommend using Rumford aluminum free baking powder. So glad that others are enjoying it!

    I searched for a Beer Bread recipe after having some at a German resturant, I think this one comes close! Only they added Kosher salt on top! I used an Octoberfest in mine!

    This bread was great! It was sweet, hearty, and a little sticky, perfect to serve with a thick chowder for dinner on a cold evening. Thanks for posting!

    This is great bread. I found the honey wheat beer at a brewery pub close to home. It makes a very tasty bread. I'll be making this again but must be careful as I can kill a whole loaf by myself! Thanks for posting Erindipity. Made for My3Chefs Nov '09.


I live in Tampa, FL with my husband and 6 year old daughter. I work full time which leaves me little time for other activities, however my weekends are filled with cooking. In what little time I have left over after all my other responsibilities I enjoy reading and watching a little television. <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/freezer.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
