How to Make Beer Bread

If you are looking for a quick and easy bread recipe that is full of flavor, look no further. My sister, Mimi, passed this recipe along from one of her boyfriend's roomates at UNC. I made it awhile back and just found the recipe as I was doing some January cleaning. Here it is:

Beer Bread:
1.5 cups of whole wheat flour
1.5 cups of white flour
4.5 tsp. baking soda
1.5 tsp. salt
12 oz beer

Assorted nuts, dried fruit, seeds, etc.

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all the dry ingredients together, then pour in the beer. Mix it all together. It will be a very sticky dough. Now you can add in a variety of seeds, dried nuts, and dried fruit if you want to make it a heartier bread. I recommend sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds and maybe some chopped dried apricots.

Pour dough into a greased loaf pan and back for 50 to 60 minutes.

This bread will make your entire house smell good and tastes great with butter.
