Insanely easy and just the right balance of rye, fennel, beer, and melted butter, which always helps. I made this for a brainstorm session with Carlsberg/Jacobsen brewery when I was a Visiting Researcher at the Nordic Food Lab and I need to make it again!
- 2 cups flour, sifted (not packed)
- 1 cup rye flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 12 ounce can or bottle of dark beer, such as a brown ale
- 1/4 cup butter, melted

Sift together all dry ingredients. Add beer and stir with a wooden spoon until incorporated.
Grease a loaf pan and add batter. Pour melted butter over the top.
Bake for 30-45 minutes.
