NO KNEAD Guinness Beer Bread for St. Patrick’s Day!

Enjoy a slice of this crusty NO KNEAD Guinness Beer Brown Soda Bread topped with homemade honey butter alongside my One Pot Guinness Stout Stew and a cold draught Guinness Beer.

Best of all, there’s no need to knead this bread. I love it! Just mix the dry ingredients and cut in the butter with a pastry utensil until it’s crumb like. Then add all the web ingredients and stir till all combined. Just don’t over stir it.

Makes 1 loaf of bread for about 10 thick slices.

Prep your pan:

Butter a 9”x5” bread baking pan – all sides and the bottom. Set aside.

Preheat your oven to 350F degrees a few minutes before you're ready to bake.

Include in your Guinness Soda Bread Batter:

2 1/3 C Whole Wheat Flour

¾ C Flour

½ C Oats, rolled (not instant)

1 ¼ t Baking soda

¼ t Salt

1 ½ T Brown Sugar

3 T Butter, soft (not melted)

1 C Milk, whole (not 1% or 2%)

1/3 C Molasses

1 t Vanilla

1 C Guinness Draught Beer

Start Mixing:

- Mix all dry ingredients together thoroughly. Save some oats to sprinkle on top of the batter in the pan.

- Add the butter and cut it in with a pastry utensil until it resembles bread crumbs.

- Add all the wet ingredients at once.

- Stir just until everything is combined without over mixing - you’ll end up with a sticky batter.

- Pour batter into the buttered bread pan

- Sprinkle a few oats over the top of the batter.

- Bake at 350F degrees for 40-50 minutes. Check it at 40 minutes – if it sounds hollow when you tap the top, it’s done. If not, bake a little longer until the tapping produces a hollow sound.

- Loosen the bread by running a knife around all the edges.

- Let bread cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes.

- Tip and let pan roll out onto a rack or cutting board. Let it cool longer on its side.

Enjoy it with a dark draught beer:

- Cut a slice while it’s still warm to enjoy it at its freshest, with honey butter or your favorite thick slice of cheese.

- Try it day old, toasted and warm a thick slice of cheese on top of it.

- Grill two slices with cheese and fried bacon sandwiched in-between.

- Heat up some brie and dollop it with homemade blueberry jam alongside your crusty dark bread!

- I can't imagine that you'd have any left over, but this bread also makes very good croutons. - Simply cut the bread into cubes and put into a bowl. Sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil and any herbs or spices you like. Toast in a 200F degree oven and let them dry in 30-40 minutes. Toss them over a tuna salad on toast or across your favorite green salad. Double Yum!

Enjoy this dark crusty bread with friends along with a Guinness Stout draught beer, Guinness Stout Stew and “Bake your own Memories!”
