Guinness Oatmeal Molasses Bread

Guinness Oatmeal Molasses Bread

So…I said in our last post that we weren’t giving you a beer bread recipe for St. Patrick’s Day.  We changed our minds. 😉 I found a recipe on Guinness’ site and had to try it.  Oatmeal, molasses, and dark stout? Turns out it’s incredibly moist, hearty, and not too sweet — so here you are!  A little late, but we can make St. Patrick’s Day last all weekend, why not?  I think it would be amazing either as a breakfast bread (slathered with Irish butter), or paired with Irish stew and a bit of sharp Irish Cheddar. You might even kick up your heels for an Irish jig! Erin go bragh!

I did change a few things — I think black molasses is probably darker and less sweet than our molasses, so I put less than the amount on the Guinness site. I also put in more oats and less flour. Otherwise it’s the “really true” Guinness official recipe. 😀  Feel free to try both!
