Irish Guinness Bread - St Patrick's Day Special Recipe!!!
Recipe type: Bread
Irish Guinness bread is without a doubt one of the nicest breads I have ever tasted. In addition, it is also one of the simplest breads to make. In fact, even if you have never boiled an egg, you will be able to make Guinness bread.
- 250ml Rolled oats
- 500ml Whole wheat flour
- 125ml Brown sugar
- 10ml Baking soda (bicarb)
- 5ml Baking powder
- 2.5ml Salt
- 60ml Melted butter
- 10ml Vanilla extract
- 250ml Cultured butter milk
- 360ml Guinness Draught
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir these together until well combined.
- In a second mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, vanilla extract, cultured buttermilk and Guinness draught beer.
- Use a ball whisk to mix this until well combined, then add the dry ingredients. Mix this together until you have a batter that resembles porridge.
- Pour the batter into an 8 inch square non-stick pan. If your pan is not non-stick, give it a good rub-down with butter.
- Bake the bread in a preheated oven at 220c or 425f for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to 200c or 400f and continue yo bake for a further 30 minutes.
- Let the loaf cool in the oven for 30 minutes before turning it out onto a cooling rack.
- And there we have it, Irish Guinness bread... with a super-crispy and caramelized crust and a soft airy crumb.
- This bread is best served warm with a generous dose of butter and honey.
