Double Pumpkin-Beer Bread

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"Doubling the pumpkin by adding pumpkin beer puts a little twist on your typical pumpkin bread recipe. Pumpkin beer and chia seed create an incredibly moist and flavorful bread. It is always fun to explain what's hidden inside too! Chia seed gives a boost of added nutrients, while the leftover beer is great for sipping while you bake! The perfect fall-infused bread!"

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Combine flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat the sugar, canola oil, whole eggs, egg white, pumpkin beer, and pumpkin puree together in a large bowl until smooth. Combine chia seeds and water in a small bowl, then whisk in the chia seed mixture into the pumpkin mixture until smooth and well-blended. Gradually stir in the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture. Mix until smooth. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan, and layer the chopped walnuts on top.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.


  • Cook's Notes
  • In season, many supermarkets carry pumpkin beer, however you may have to look at a specialty store. If pumpkin beer can't be found, substitute with a honey beer instead.
  • This recipe could easily be doubled if you are entertaining more guests.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Everyone loves it!

This is a very good recipe - my kids loved it. I added chocolate chips to it. I live at high altitude, so it needed an additional 10 minutes.

This is a great recipe for pumpkin bread. I used equal amount of coconut oil instead of the canola oil. And for the pumpkin beer I used Lakefront Brewery Pumpkin Spice beer from Milwaukee, WI.

This was excellent! I used white whole wheat flour and Oktoberfest beer. I also cooked it in a ceramic loaf pan, so I put the temp down 25 degrees and cooked it for a bit longer. Everything else...

Absolutely incredible. I’ve made this many times and it always comes out delicious. I will say make sure to put your chia seeds in the water right before mixing them in. They’ll soak up all the ...

Really good and moist. We made it with raisins in half the loaf and it was delicious.
