Beer bread!

While browsing through bread machine recipes I found one on beer bread. I was truly intrigued and decided to make it as well.

So, beer bread:


For ingredients I used:


  • 1 cup of beer (make sure it is not cold!)
  • 1 pack of active yeast
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 4 cups of whole wheat flour


For beer I used a local beer from San Diego – For that matter any kind of beer can be used to bake bread. Never the less, Stone IPA beer gave a great taste to my bread.

Normally in  bread recipes beer is mixed with water, but I decided to experiment and use only beer. If you like to have a less intense beer flavor, mix it with water.

For this recipe I used a whole wheat cycle in my bread machine.

The result was a very tasty bread!

    Beer! Brilliant! I will add some belgian trappist ale the next time it’s baking day. That should do the trick for an intense flavor.
