Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon white or brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (if vegan)
  • 1 bottle (12 ounce) of a great beer
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with butter and line with parchment. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add in the honey (or maple syrup) and beer and mix until just combined. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Evenly pour the melted butter over the top of the batter.
  3. Transfer the pan to the oven and place a baking sheet on the lower rack to catch any butter that may drip from the loaf pan.
  4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and the top is golden brown.
  5. Cool to warm. Slice and serve with salted butter or honey butter. Day-old bread toasts well.
