Beer Bread

What they call "quick breads" -- it gets its rising power from the beer and so-called chemical leavening agents, thereby making it the sort of thing you could actually think about the afternoon you were planning dinner and still see it on your supper table. A beautiful recipe as it can be greatly modified by simply changing the beer ingredient.


  • 1 cup whole wheat or bread flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 Tbl sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 oz non-stout beer, not flat


Mix the dry ingredients together and add the beer into the mixture, folding the ingredients until moistened. Scrape the mixture into a 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" greased pan and bake 35-40 minutes at 400F degrees or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes on a wire rack before serving.
