To prepare Nut Brown Ale Beer Bread:

Cooks note: Any flavor of beer can be used to make this bread, I like the nutty flavor the brown ale delivers. Just make sure that the unopened can or bottle is at room temperature before using.

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rye or wheat flour
  • 3 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 ounces nut brown ale, room temperature (opened right before using)
  • 3 tablespoon butter, melted

Heat oven to 375°F. Prepare a 7″ x 3″ bread pan with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl sift together all dry ingredients. Create a well in the center of the flour mixture, open the beer and pour. Mix the beer into the flour to create a thick batter. Stir only enough to make sure all of the flour is moistened. Over mixing will create a tough bread. Spread dough into the prepared pan, and pour the melted butter over the top.

Bake in the oven for 50 – 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and the top has formed a golden crust. Remove from the oven, and allow bread to stand in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.
