I am really excited to shared this beer bread with you. If you have never tasted beer bread, you don’t know what you are missing. It is sweet, buttery, moist and chewy. Every time I have this Guinness bread I am utterly amazed at how delicious it is. 

It is just incredible.

Now this bread is not with just any beer. This bread is made with Guinness. The classic Irish stout has a wonderful flavour and with every bite of this bread you can taste the Guinness. It is amazing because the taste of Guinness is present but not overpowering.

Not only do I love the flavour of this bread, but I also love how easy it is to make. There is no yeast in this bread, so there is no kneading required. There is also no need to let it rest and rise.

This bread uses baking powder and that along with the carbonation of the Guinness it gets all the lift it needs. You can get this bread in the oven within 10 minutes. It is that easy to make.

  • When you say “flour”, do you mean all-purpose flour? Self-rising flour? Baking has kind of been my kryptonite, so I don’t like to assume! lol I really am looking forward to trying this recipe. Thank you for sharing it!

  • It was great. I was in a Guiness sort of mood. I made Guiness stew and served the bread as a side. YUM! The bread sliced better when it was cool.

  • I cut my sugar down to a half cup toasted with butter and it was great.
