Cranberry Oatmeal Beer Bread

Posted Jan 19 2011 8:17am

Beer for breakfast? Hopefully not, except maybe during Mardi Gras...

(Just kidding! No alcohol breakfasts for me, at least!)

But beer bread for breakfast, paired with wholesome oats and cranberries? Why not? ;-)

Cranberry Oatmeal Beer Bread

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup turbinado sugar
1 tsp salt
1 T baking powder
1 cup dried cranberries
12 oz beer (I used Trader Joe's Simpler Times Lager)
2 oz water

~ Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9X5" loaf pan with cooking spray.
~ Gently stir together the flours, oatmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
~ Fold in the dried cranberries, distributing them well throughout the flour mixture.
~ Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour the beer and water into the well. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined.
~ Scoop the dough into the loaf pan, and bake for 40 to 45 min - until the top of the bread is just lightly golden. Serve warm, with jam, butter, SmartBalance Light, etc, of course! :-)
