Whole Wheat Beer Bread, easy and delicious!

With only four ingredients you can have a loaf of Whole Wheat Beer Bread on the table as quick as can be!


When we lived on the coast of Washington state we would go to Seaside Oregan for the day to walk around and have a bowl of chowder for dinner. Our favorite place was a little cafe on the corner right on the main street heading to the ocean. They served hot buttered beer bread with every order that came out of the kitchen! I can only imagine how many loaves of bread they made each day, and my guess is, that the bread ran out before anything else...

Whole Wheat Beer Bread is a cook's best friend on a busy day. Four ingredients will turn into a hot loaf of bread that will be the perfect start to a meal, especially a meal of salad and soup. I am pretty sure I could enjoy soup and salad for dinner with a loaf of this bread fresh from the oven. Plus this is the best part, this delicious Beer Bread is (conveniently!) made with the Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour you have in the pantry, so the only question is when do we begin!

Some folks think that slices of quick bread don't really make good sandwiches, and while this bread is not as tender or pliable as yeast bread, it makes a fine sandwich! Plus this Whole Wheat Beer Bread toasts up in the toaster or under a broiler flame, perfect for breakfast or as a grilled cheese sandwich! Bread never goes to waste around here...


Some thoughts on this recipe:

This recipe is from a fun cookbook called Easy Beans, so it goes without saying that yes Whole Wheat Beer Bread goes great with a pot of beans!

While I have not made Cheesy Beer Bread, my guess is you can stir in 1/2 c grated sharp cheddar cheese while you are beating those 25 strokes to develop some gluten...

Should you want to saute some fresh garlic in the butter before you pour it over the loaf, my guess is, that would be so tasty!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour
  • sugar
  • 12 oz beer of choice
  • butter
You will also need:
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • medium-sized mixing bowl
  • 9X5 loaf pan
  • kitchen spoon
  • silicone spatula
  • small saucepan
Now we are ready to begin!



Whole Wheat Beer Bread

adapted from: Easy Beans
375-degree oven

3 c Whole Wheat Self-Rising Flour  - our recipe found here.
3 T sugar
1 12oz can or bottle of beer, room temp

3 T melted butter



Stir together flour and sugar, add beer, and beat 25 strokes with a wooden spoon, to develop a bit of gluten in the batter.

Spoon the dough into a prepared 9X5-inch loaf pan.



Bake for 40 minutes. 

While the Whole Wheat Beer Bread is baking, melt the butter in a small saucepan, set aside, and keep warm. 

When the timer chimes, pour the melted butter over the top of the dough and bake for 10 minutes more. 



Let cool, and turn out to cool long enough to slice without burning your fingertips!

Storage options for Whole Wheat Beer Bread. Wrap well in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to three days. If you need/want to store it longer you may store it in the freezer

  1. I just may try. I never get the yeast thing just right so this may be a great alternative.
