Guinness Bread

Bringing a bit of Dublin to London

Blogger with GuinnessUK Blogger makes guinness bread

I ate a lot of Guinness bread in Dublin, which isn’t surprising really what with Dublin being the home to Guinness. When we got back to London I found myself craving the slightly sweet bread on a regular basis and i’m not one to ignore my stomach. Now i’ve made bread before so thought i’d have a crack at making Guinness bread, although it’s not exactly the same as ‘normal’ bread; it’s a bit more like baking a cake.

Read about my adventures in Dublin here.

I went straight to the source for a recipe Guinness own website and then I tweaked it very slightly; mainly halving the ingredients to fit my smaller loaf tin and a longer baking time.

You will need (for a small loaf tin):

– 300g wholemeal flour

– 75g plain flour

– 38g oatmeal

– 2 teaspoons of bread soda

– 1/2 teaspoon of salt

– 2 tablespoons of brown sugar

– 20g butter

– 240ml milk

– 100ml black treacle

– 1/4 pint of Guinness® Draught 

Pre-heat the oven to 170°C .Mix the butter with all dry ingredients until the dough develops the consistency of breadcrumbs, add the milk, black treacle and the Guinness® Draught. Stir until you reach a wet dough, it looks slightly like poop in a bowl but trust me it turns out delicious. Bake in loaf tin lined with grease proof paper for 60 minutes take out and let cool.

Serve with butter for a quick snack or use it alongside a stew to mop up all the goodness.

This recipe is taken from the Guinness official website and I take no credit for the recipe.
