Yield
2 loaves, 14 servings per loaf (serving size: 1 slice)

Give the second loaf away, or wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for up to two months. Ground flaxseed and water add moisture to the batter for a smooth-textured bread.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, salt, and next 4 ingredients (through pumpkin pie spice) in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk.

Step 3

Combine 1/2 cup water and flaxseed.

Step 4

Place sugar and next 4 ingredients (through eggs) in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium-high speed until well blended. Add flaxseed mixture and pumpkin; beat at low speed just until blended. Add flour mixture; beat just until combined. Divide batter between 2 (9 x 5–inch) loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pans. Cool completely on wire rack.

If I don't drink any kind of beer, is there something I can substitute for the honey beer?

My husband LOVED this bread. After reading the reviews and all the changes bakers had made, here is how I changed ours: 1/3 cup applesauce for 1/3 cup oil; 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup honey, 1/4 agave neater for the 2 1/4 cups sugar; Guinness beer for honey beer and for the water and finally 3 eggs instead of the 2 plus egg substitute. I know my husband will want this again. Thanks.

Delicious and versatile! I didn't have honey beer, but I did have a cheap lager laying around so believe it or not I used PBR with honey added! I also soaked the flaxseed in the beer as other reviewers did. I also replaced 1/2 cup white sugar with brown and added some vanilla. Replaced pumpkin spice with nutgmet, allspice and ginger. Came out fantastic!
