Similar to a traditional pumpkin bread in flavor and texture, this pumpkin spice beer bread uses seasonal pumpkin beer to drive the fall flavors home!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare to 9x5 inch loaf pans by buttering or spraying with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a stand mixer, or in a large bowl by hand, beat together sugar, canola oil, beer, vanilla and honey until well-combined.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add pumpkin and mix until fully incorporated.
In another bowl, whisk together flours, salt, baking soda, baking powder and pumpkin spice. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, mixing until just incorporated.
Divide batter evenly between prepared loaf pans, filling them ¾ of the way. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes to 1 hour and 10 minutes*, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool bread in pans on a wire rack 15-20 minutes before attemping to remove from pan.
