Guinness Irish Brown Bread

Guinness Irish Bread has a simple farm house appeal that is hearty and delicious. Fresh from the oven with a heaping pat of Irish butter, a slice of this heavy bread washes down with a fabulous agrestic satisfaction. I enjoy the completeness of a table that features a fresh baked bread. This Irish Bread recipe captures the dark rich flavors of a Guinness Draught and puts them in a loaf of fresh filling bread that everyone in your home will enjoy. The simplicity of this recipe makes this bread that much more fun to make. Best enjoyed with a good stew like my Guinness Irish Beef stew, this bread is also fantastic covered in homemade preserves. My kids love to warm a slice of this bread, cover with a pat of butter and then add a gorgeous layer of my homemade peach preserve for a simple ready to go snack.

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease the loaf pan with softened butter or coat with cooking spray. In a large bowl: combine flour, salt, brown sugar, oats, baking powder and whisk.

In a separate medium bowl: combine buttermilk, melted butter, molasses and whisk. Add beer and mix.

Pour the contents of the medium bowl (wet mix) in the large bowl with the dry mixture. Whisk everything together until well combined.

Pour the smooth batter into the loaf pan.

Optional: sprinkle 1 tbsp of rolled oats on top of the batter.

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick placed in the center of the bread comes out clean.

Spread Irish butter, jam/fruit preserves over the slices of bread or serve with Irish stew.

Enjoy!
