How to make the perfect Guinness bread

How to make the perfect Guinness bread

The Doyle Collection hotels homemade Guinness Bread is a staple on the menu at all their restaurants. Served as a side or a light bite, this deliciously moorish bread has almost a cake-like texture and can be enjoyed as it is, or accompanied by smoked salmon for breakfast or perhaps Dorset Crab with apple and mayonnaise as a quick lunchtime bite. 

Ingredients:

  • 310g Whole Wheat Flour
  • 410g White Flour
  • 140g Rolled Oats
  • 1 teaspoon Table Salt
  • 2 ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 270g Milk
  • 70g Black Treacle (or molasses)
  • 140ml Guinness

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 180c
  • Mix together the whole wheat flour, white flour, oats, salt and baking soda in a large bowl.
  • Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles small crumbs.
  • Add the milk, black treacle (or molasses) and Guinness, and mix until well combined.
  • Use cooking spray to coat 2 bread loaf pans, and pour the batter into the pans.
  • Sprinkle a little more oatmeal on top.
  • Bake at 180c for 45 minutes to an hour, until the centre is cooked through and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
