What You'll Need
  • 1 bottle Hertog Jan Beer (or another natural beer)
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 tablespoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1-2 tablespoons sun flower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 10 cl water
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/ 375F. Grease a baking tin with butter.
  2. Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sun flower seeds in a bowl. Make a well and mix in the honey and the beer, combine everything together. Possibly the mixture is quiet thick, add up to 10 cl of water to make a nice batter.
  3. Pour the mixture in the baking tin and bake in the middle of the oven for 45 minutes. Let it cool down on a rack.

Janneke, when I first started to mix the ingredients for your recipe, I was not expecting much to come out of it. The house didn’t smell of bread while it was baking… When I got if out of the oven and the crust was so hard; so I decided to brush a little melted butter and let it cool down. When my husband got home from work we gave it a try. What a wonderful surprise! The bread is delicious, very soft, yet quite firm. This morning I ate two slices with butter for breakfast. I am sure you will forgive me for using a regular Budweiser instead! And I omitted the sunflower seeds, because I didn’t have any. Not sure if you will agree, but this appears to be a very versatile bread. I imagine it won’t hurt to add nuts, or sliced olives or even shredded cheddar? Since I am fond of sweets, I bet increasing the honey and decreasing the beer will afford a delicious result! This is certainly a keeper, which I will make many times. Thanks for sharing!
