Chilly weather is the perfect reason to stay home and bake, and what better excuse to crack open a beer while you bake than the fact that the recipe told you to! If you’ve never had beer bread before, have you really been living? But in all honestly beer bread is crazy delicious, so easy to make, and is the perfect excuse to pick up some to go beers next time you come by the brewery.
Beer bread is a little different than other homemade breads because the beer adds a lightness from the carbonation, while still being hearty and with a slight sweetness that goes perfectly with a pat of butter or a bit of honey. This recipe only calls for one bowl, minimal ingredients, and could be made by even the most beginner of bakers.
This recipe is a pumpkin spiced take on beer bread, using some pumpkin puree, pumpkin spices, and of course pumpkin spiced beer. We’ve made this recipe with Pumpkin Piehole and damn is it a winner. We can’t wait for you to try this recipe - it’s easy enough to make on a weekday night with a big bowl of soup of chili, but it also makes a great addition to any of your upcoming holiday feasts.
