1 12oz bottle of beer (use a beer without preservatives)
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached flour
4 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
Preheat over to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan warm up the beer and maple syrup (I've also done this in a measuring cup in the microwave). Mix together remaining ingredients, pour warm liquid into the flour mixture and mix it up. Pour batter into well-buttered loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes.
