Easy 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.  It should freeze well but I have not tried freezing it.  This bread makes a wonderful gift.

Irish beer bread gets great reviews.

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup white granulated sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 egg

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!
