Why I Love This Recipe

I just recently had a potluck al' fresco style at my house a weekend ago. It was so much fun! I decided to make one of my old stand bys, since I made ribs again. Beer Bread! My mother use to make it all the time, when I was a kid and I loved loved it when it would come out of the oven dripping in butter and all hot! As an adult, I have added my little love to the beer bread by using dark beer- my mother would always use a light beer. I LOVE to use, Guiness with my recipe. It gives a rich flavor!

I personally love it with butter, but at the party friends were using a nice beer mustard and even goat cheese. It was amazing.

So I share.

Guiness Beer Bread- makes 2 loaves

Ingredients You'll Need

6 C self-rising flour
1 C sugar
2 bottles dark beer (guiness)

1 C butter melted- set aside


In a large mixer-with bread dough attachment- mix the flour, sugar and beer until well mixed. Placed in greased bread pans.

Bake 350F/180C for 30 minutes

At 30 minutes of baking, split the top of loaves and pour half of butter on top. Bake additional 15 minutes

Remove bread from oven, pour the rest of the butter on top of loaves. Set aside to cool 10 minutes. Serve hot or cold-

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Just made this last night, but I did just the basic template recipe for beer bread (12 floz of beer to 3 C self-rising flour). Worked great, roommates loved it. Some other interesting things to add, depending on your audience:
couple tablespoons sugar - smooths a little
garlic powder (I use 2 tablespoons) - it's garlic, always great.Couple dashes of salt - sometimes yes, sometimes no - to taste
grated extra sharp cheddar (tillamook!) - about 1/2 cup

If you're adding any of the dry-ingredients I usually go lighter on the flour, add the "extras" and then top off with more flour until you get the correct consistancy. Also - I use melted butter poured on top before baking and 20-min before done.
