Guinness Bread Recipe

This beer bread is so simple that it can be assembled in a matter of minutes, and it was made using beer.

– 2 cups all purpose flour – 1 cup oat flour – 1/2 cup golden brown sugar, packed – 1 Tbsp baking powder – 1 tsp coarse salt – 11.2 ounces Guinness Draught, (one bottle) – 1 Tbsp rolled oats



Heat the oven to 350F. Butter a regular loaf pan and line it with parchment. The paper is optional but makes a handy'sling' for removing the bread after baking.

Step 1

Step 2

Mix flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Clear your brown sugar of lumps.

Step 3

Add Guinness and mix. Don't overmix; just mix until all flour is incorporated. Spread evenly in your prepared pan. 

Step 4

Top with rolled oats. The bread can be baked right away, but for optimal results, let it rest on the counter for 20–30 minutes.

Step 5

Bake 35 minutes till risen and golden. A central toothpick should not show wet batter (moist crumbs are fine).

Step 6

After cooling, slice and enjoy the bread. It seems to dry out if I slice it before eating. Bread can last a week in foil, plastic, or an airtight container. This can be frozen for longer storage.
