Yup, that's right - that's beer you see bubbling up the side of the bread. Once this loaf is out of the oven though, the beer will seep into the loaf in less time than it took for you to throw this super easy bread together. This recipe was given to me by scrap eater, with the promise of easy deliciousness. Although I've slightly adjusted her recipe to my tastes, I can promise that this is a solid recipe for bread that stays moist for days.
You can also use any 500ml can of beer you like, especially if you don't like slightly salty breads, which this Guinness bread is.
Ingredients (Serving - 1 loaf):
- 2 Cups whole wheat flour
- 1 Cup all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 3 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/1 tsp salt
- 1 Can (500ml) of Guinness
- 4 Tbsp butter, melted (+1/2 Tbsp butter to grease the pan with)
- Preheat over to 350F, and grease the loaf pan with butter.
- Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Slowly add beer and mix until combined.
- Pour batter into pan, and bake for 42 minutes
- While the loaf is baking, place the 4 TBSPs of butter in a bowl, and leave covered with foil, on top of the oven (the heat coming up from the oven will melt the butter).
- Once the loaf is baked, remove from the oven and pour the melted butter evenly over top. Return to the oven, and bake for an additional 7 minutes.
