Yield: One honkin’ 13×7″ loaf of delicious bread


2 12oz cans of Mayflower Oatmeal Stout

8 cups all purpose flour

4 tbsp baking powder

4 tsp salt

2/3 cup brown sugar

4 tbsp molasses

1 cup of your favorite chocolate chips (optional)

1 cup of your favorite chopped nuts (optional)


1. Combine all ingredients in a big bowl and use your muscles to mix by hand.

2. The consistency of the batter will be thick. Add it to a greased 13×7″ loaf pan. (Or 2 9×5″ loaf pans, just make sure to only fill your pans half way to allow for rapid rising.)

3. Bake in a 350 degree oven until the center of the bread reaches a temperature of 190 degrees. It will be 40 minutes minimum, or up to 1.5 hours depending on the size of your pans and your oven.

4. Cool on a rack, then slice and enjoy with your buddies and more beer!

Try it grilled with butter, as a sandwich, or as French Toast!
