An easy whole wheat beer bread to accompany any meal!
St. Patrick’s Day is just a couple weeks away and beer recipes are popping up left and right in my Pinterest feed. It was only natural that I steal one of my husband’s beers to make this bread.
Don’t worry, he agreed it was worth it. 🙂
You can make make this bread with any beer you have on hand. I’ve made it with all types of beers, from dark stouts to this pale lager, called a pilsner. They all taste amazing! And if you’re like me, you are married to what I like to call a ‘beer snob‘. Even though I despise to the taste of beer, I have to agree with him. You could say I ‘raised him’ that way.
When we first started dating, he didn’t like chocolate or coffee. I slowly introduced him to the beauties of these two flavors. Ever since then, we’ve agreed that life is too short for bad chocolate or coffee. This motto rolled into his love for good wine and good beer. Hence, the ‘beer snob’.
I have to say, I’m pretty proud of my beer connoisseur of a husband.
Anyway. This is just a great recipe if you need bread quickly. It takes all of 2 minutes to throw the bread together, then just bake it for 1 hour! Boom. You’ve got homemade bread on the table.
