Got Beer? Got bread!

I had found this VERY easy Whole Wheat Beer Bread recipe... it won't fail you!
My Dad had purchased some beer while he was here for Christmas to boil some shrimp and there is quite a bit left in our garage... nice and cold if you want to stop by ;).
So, I have plans for this little recipe this weekend. So far, I have made some wonton "crackers," homemade potato chips with sea salt, and a few other favorites... including taking time for hot cocoa and some cookies since it is so blustery here in the Midwest.

So... here is the recipe!

Easy Whole Wheat Beer Bread

2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 cup all-pupose flour
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder
14 ounces of beer (or 12 ounces of beer and 2 ounces of water)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in beer and mix just until combined (do not overmix). Batter will be thick. Spread in an 8-inch loaf pan and bake until golden brown and a toothpick or cake tester stuck in the middle comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool 10 minutes more!
