Multi Grain Beer Bread
  • 5 Cups Unbleached All Purpose Flour
  • ½ Cup Flax Seeds
  • ½ Cup Sesame Seeds
  • 2 Cups Oat Bran
  • ¼ Cup Sunflower Seeds
  • ½ Cup Millet, Quinoa, Poppy seeds or Amaranth (or any combination) (I have successfully used quinoa and poppy seeds)
  • 1.5-2 tsp salt (Taste and add more if needed, I found mine kind of bland so increased the salt amount)
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • ⅓ Cup Beer (I used Stout Beer)
  • 2 ½ Cups Buttermilk, Milk or Half and Half ( I have made it using both buttermilk, 2% milk and combo of both successfully)
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a big bowl, add all the dry ingredients and stir together. Make a well in the center and add beer and milk. Mix using a big wooden spoon until a wet batter forms. Sprinkle flour on the work surface and take out the dough on it. Make it into a rectangular shape and transfer it onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake for around 45 mins until golden brown. Let it cool.
  4. Cut into thin slices. Remember as this is super hearty and dense, DO toast it before eating as it is kind of like English muffin. It will taste raw if not toasted. Smear with good butter or cream cheese and little salt or hot sauce.
