Pumpkin Ale Bread
Well it doesn’t feel like October in San Diego, but I tried to get myself in the Fall baking mode this weekend with a few pumpkin recipes including this pumpkin ale bread.
It felt a little strange baking with Fall spices while running the air conditioning given the heat wave in San Diego.
This is a crusty beer bread that has all the Fall spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. It’s not very sweet, so it’s a perfect sandwich bread.
This bread is very easy to put together. You don’t even need a mixer. It’s ready to go in the oven after about 10 minutes of preparation.
If you’re looking for more easy bread recipes my Cheese Beer Bread recipe only has four ingredients!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 (12-oz) bottle pumpkin ale
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 4 tbsp half stick unsalted butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9" x 5" inch loaf pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, spices and salt. Using a wooden spoon, stir the beer and pumpkin puree into the dry ingredients until just mixed. Barely mix the dough. Just a few strokes to make sure all the ingredients had come together and all the dry ingredients are incorporated, otherwise the middle of the bread will not cook properly.
Pour/Scoop batter into loaf pan. Add melted butter over top of the loaf.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until top is golden brown and a toothpick/knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
