Hopes Beer Bread-For Bread Machine



  • 1 cup +2 tablespoons  dark beer
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 1cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons honey or 2 tablespoons molasses ( I use molasses but I realize not everyone likes it)
  • 3teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast


Add ingredients to your bread machine in the order recommended by its manufacturer.

Use a basic bread cycle.

*I do not bake mine in the bread machine. I use the dough cycle and then put it in a bread pan let it do one more rise and bake it at 350 for around 30 min. all ovens very so check on it.

NOTE: In the 20+ years a have been using my bread machine I have baked the bread in it exactly One time. I just like the look and outcome better in the oven, so I always use the dough setting and bake in a loaf pan, or if doing artisan bread, I make a round loaf, make a few shallow cuts across the top and bake it on my baking stone.
