Pumpkin Ale Bread

Keeping with our autumn theme, we had Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale at our wedding reception. Well, we had some left over and neither of us are big beer drinkers. We gave some away and I've been trying to come up with ideas for the rest. I love cooking with alcohol and beer bread seemed like a natural first choice! I have to say the pumpkin ale gives the bread a wonderful autumn flavor. 

Recipe adapted from here

3 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 12 oz bottle of Pumpkin Ale

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch by 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray or butter.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and spices in a large bowl. Stir together until well combined. In the center of the bowl, make a well and pour in the beer. Beware: the beer will foam up. Fold the dry ingredients into the liquid until well combined. However, do not over mix or your bread will come out dense.

Pour the batter into the pan. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
