Beer Bread Recipe- Easy to make, healthy and tasty


This bread is too good not to share! I love that the leavening is the beer. Such a great use of a beverage. This bread is especially good with stews and soups. It is hearty, healthy and has great texture but is not heavy. The golden raisins add a touch of sweetness. Here is the recipe:

Beer Bread
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons caraway seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons golden raisins, chopped
1 (12-ounce) can light beer, at room temperature
1/4 cup frozen egg substitute, thawed
Vegetable cooking spray

Combine first 7 ingredients; make a well in center of mixture. Add beer and egg substitute, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Spoon batter into an 8 1/2- x 4 1/2- x 3- inch loafpan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375 for 45 to 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan; let cool completely on a wire rack. Yield: 16 servings (116 calories per 1/2 inch slice).
