Traditional Irish Beer Bread
This Irish Beer Bread recipe is so easy to make and the bread is delicious. Be sure to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a loaf of this bread to share with your family and friends. You may have to make two! It is just that good. This bread keeps several days in a cool place. The recipe can be doubled if you like.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 (11.2 ounce) bottle of Guiness Draught beer
In a large mixing bowl use a wire whisk to mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the egg and beer mixing with a spoon. (I don’t use a mixer with this bread) Generously spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with cooking spray and add dough for bread. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until brown on top. This bread will not be white because the beer is a dark beer. It smells great while baking and is wonderful with butter while still hot. Makes one loaf of bread. Enjoy!
