Beer Bread


This beer bread recipe was brought to light from Sarah Hatfield of No Whey, Mama

“It looks as if the make-your-own self-rising flour measurements are 1 cup flour + 1 teaspoon baking powder + 1/2 teaspoon salt = 1 cup self-rising flour. I’m going to try to make my own self-rising whole wheat flour and see how it turns out.

Since the Rolling Rock buyout, I’ve changed my Pennsylvania beer allegiance to Yuengling. When I made the bread this weekend, I used Yuengling Black & Tan, which gave it an enjoyably bitter beer flavor.”

She later noted a lighter beer would be best if this bread will be served to kids.  Never fear, the alcohol is baked away!

  1. I tried to make the self rising flour with whole wheat flour and it didn’t turn out well. I ended up with a brick instead of bread. I’m going to see if I can buy whole wheat self rising flour and try it again because it smelled awesome.

    • Yes, you would need to add leavener (to replace the “self-rising” aspect) regardless of what flour you use if you are substituting self-rising. From there, I recommend white-wheat flour if you are trying to go whole grain. It is still 100% whole wheat, but is a softer strain of wheat that rises better.
