Farmgirl Fare's Almost Too Easy Whole Wheat Beer Bread
recipe from Susan at Farmgirls Fare
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
14 ounces of beer (or a 12 ounce beer and 2 ounces of water)
Glaze: Optional 1 egg and 1 teaspoons water, beaten.
Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine the flours, sugar, salt & baking powder in a large bowl . Slowly stir in the beer and mix until combined. Batter will be thick.
Spread in a greased 8 inch loaf pan. Brush with egg glaze if desired and bake until golden brown or a toothpick tests clean (about 45 minutes). Cool in pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cook 10 more minutes. Serve warm or room temp.
