Beer breads are one of my favorite things to make.
They’re easy, no kneading, only 3 ingredients, and virtually impossible to mess up.
And you can change the flavor by just changing the beer or in this case stout.
Actually anything fizzy will work because it’s the carbonation reacting with the levening agents in the self-rising flour that makes the bread rise.
This stout beer bread has a chewy crust and a moist interior. It’s bold and robust with the very distinct flavor of Guinness.
And it goes perfectly with the Guinness Braised Corned Beef I make in my slow cooker every year. Think corned beef and swiss grilled cheese!
Start by spraying your loaf pan with some cooking spray.
Next, put the flour and sugar in a big bowl and give it a good mix.
Then pour in the stout (it works best if it’s at room temperature)…
…and gently stir it together until it’s combined.
It will be somewhat lumpy, that’s okay.
Pour the batter in your prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top.
Bake it for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
Let your beer bread cool in the pan for 5 minutes.
Then turn it out onto a cooling rack to finish cooling.
