- 4 TB Purple Basil Pesto Sauce, divided use, 3 TB use in a frozen state. (see my recipe within this blog)
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 TB plus 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 TB sugar
- 1 bottle of beer
- 2 TB Salted Butter, melted
Preheat your oven to 350 and butter a bread loaf pan.
In a large bowl sift together the flours, baking powder and salt. Stir in the sugars. Slice the 3 tablespoons of frozen pesto sauce into small slivers and stir this ingredient also into the flour mixture. Add the beer and stir until blended. Spread the mixture into your bread pan. Stir your remaining tablespoon of the purple basil pesto sauce into the melted butter and brush over the top of the bread dough. Bake for 60 minutes. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
