  • 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces beer (ale, lager, or pilsner recommended)
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil (as needed), divided
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Generously coat the bottom of a 9-inch loaf pan with olive oil.

  2. Stir the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Add the beer, maple syrup, and 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Stir everything together just until fully mixed. The batter will be very thick.

  4. Transfer the batter to the loaf pan. Smooth out the top with a spoon, then drizzle the top with about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Spread the oil around with a spoon or your hands if needed.

  5. Place the pan into the oven and bake the loaf until the top is set and lightly browned, 45 to 50 minutes.

  6. Place the pan on a cooling rack and allow the bread to cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing.

  7. Slice and serve.
