Makes one loaf
3 C plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1/3 C oats + 1 tbsp
2/3 C dark brown sugar
1 tbsp butter
Preheat oven to 175C/350F and grease a loaf pan with the butter.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, 1/3 C oats and brown sugar. Slowly beat the Guinness into the dry ingredients using an electric mixer on a low setting. Make sure it is not lumpy but do not over-mix.
Pour the batter in the greased loaf try and sprinkle the 1 tbsp of oats on top.
Bake the bread for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Place on a cooling rack at room temperature.
I wouldn't recommend this bread not toasted as it is a little heavy but toasted with butter it is so delicious! It says you can use any type of beer with this recipe so I foresee a range of beer breads in the near future!
*If you are looking for a slightly healthier option, I have also tried this bread with 1C wholemeal flour and 2C plain white and there is little difference.
**I have since tried this with London Pride instead of Guinness and it worked great! It was even a little sweeter than with Guinness and didn't rise quite as much but again toasted with butter is so delicious.
