Yesterday I came across a recipe for beer bread on the blog Half Baked Harvest. It looked so good and SIMPLE, I had to give it a try. I used Guinness Extra Stout and added some raisins to the already yummy mix. Ready for a super delish bread? I sure was- six ingredients, no kneading, and less than an hour baking time. Let's do it!
Guinness Stout Raisin Bread
Inspired by Half Baked Harvest
Makes one 9 x 5 loaf
3 cups flour
4-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup brown sugar loosely packed
1/2 tsp salt
12 oz Guinness Extra Stout
1/2 to 3/4 cups raisins plumped in boiling water and drained
Lightly spritz a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray and pre heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine first 4 ingredients together in a large bowl (flour through salt) and whisk to combine. Add your Guinness.
Then the raisins. Stir with a wooden spoon until just combined and there is no extra flour mixture or clumps. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
