And SuperCoolBlogReader also loves beer bread (B).
So as a result, what will SuperCoolBlogReader also love (A+B)?
( Fill in the blank )
Oh yes. I’m pretty sure that all of you SuperCoolBlogReaders everywhere are going to love this Pumpkin Beer Bread! I mean, it’s a mathematical fact. ;)
As a SuperCoolBlogReader (ok, and writer) myself, I have long been a total fan of both beer bread and pumpkin bread. And judging by the pageviews on this site, apparently you all are too! The honey beer bread recipe that I posted 4 years ago on the site (as a total newbie blogger) is still one of the most popular recipes on Gimme Some Oven. And all of our pumpkin recipes are going bonkers right now (in a wonderful, pumpkin-licious way).
So for a seasonal twist, it seemed like a no-brainer to add in some pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices and pumpkin ale to one of my favorite breads and turn it into a Pumpkin Beer Bread.
Truly, this pumpkin beer bread recipe highlights the best parts of both pumpkin bread and beer bread. The bread was nice and tangy from the yeast, and perfectly buttery and chewy — like beer bread. But then the bread also had a nice subtle hint of pumpkin, with a few little spices, which I loved.
To be clear, though, this bread definitely errs much more on the yeasty “beer bread” side than the sweet pumpkin bread side. It’s the perfect bread to be served with an autumn dinner, or with some nice sweet butter.
I’m pretty sure that you — yes you, SuperCoolBlogReader — are going to love it. Enjoy!!
Can you make beer bread using the quick bread and muffin pumpkin mix
We haven’t tried that Jimmy, but we think so! :)
Tried this. Ended up with 2 loaves (smallish). I don’t know if it is the beer I used but mine turned out pretty tasteless at the bite but then a bitter aftertaste. We weren’t fans even if it did come out as pretty as pictured. Thank you for sharing the recipe though.
Oh no, we’re sorry to hear that! What kind of beer did you use?
I used Blue Moon harvest pumpkin beer and this bread is wonderful. Next time I might whisk the pumpkin really well before adding so bread has less pumpkin lumps. Great with soup!
Delicious! Used 1/4 c brown sugar instead of the honey.
I have been making beer bread for years and never gave it a thought to add pumpkin. I served it with Pumpkin sausage soup, they went together quite well. I followed the recipe only using 2/3 all purpose flour and 1/3 whole wheat flour. I will make this again.
This is a good bread. I made it, excited to try the recipe, without first reading the comments, I noticed that many said it was bitter, hard, doughy, lacking flavor etc… I disagree! For the purpose of the one variable factor, I used Ellicottville Pumpkinville beer.
Now, This is a BEER bread first and foremost. It has that flavor. Beer bread is typically enjoyed with butter, as posted in the recipe, and that’s how this bread is best enjoyed. It is a unique bread and I’ve truly never had anything like it. The pumpkin flavor shines through in an interesting almost floral, fragrant way. The spice is there but pumpkin and beer are the stars of the show. It’s chewy, and pleasant with a good crustiness to it. I will make this again. I enjoyed it a lot. I do think it could use a bit more salt but luckily that’s something that’s a personal taste and I can salt my bread when I butter it.
Thanks for this great first day of fall recipe that doesn’t make my teeth hurt from sweetness.
