  • 450g/1lb Odlums Coarse Wholemeal Flour
  • 2 level tsp Odlums Bread Soda
  • 25g/1oz Odlums Pinhead Porridge Oats
  • 4 tablespoons Shamrock Demerara Sugar
  • 50g/2oz Butter
  • 1 tbsp Treacle
  • 400ml Guinness or Stout
  • 80g packet Shamrock Chopped Walnuts (optional)

If you've ever dreamed of a healthy and hearty loaf, then look no further than this Guinness Brown Bread.

There's nothing better than a warm bowl of soup teamed with a delicious brown bread with a distinctive flavour.

The best excuse for Guinness at the breakfast table!


Step 1

Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas 5. Lightly grease a 2lb loaf tin.

Step 2

Put butter and treacle into a saucepan over a low heat and allow the butter to melt.

Step 3

Meanwhile, put the wholemeal, pinhead oats, sugar and chopped walnuts into a bowl. Sieve in the bread soda and mix well.

Step 4

When the butter has melted, add the Guinness or stout and stir.

Step 5

Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix well. Transfer mixture to prepared tin and bake for about 40 to 50 minutes until risen. Tap underneath to check for a hollow sound when cooked.

Step 6

Wrap in a clean tea towel and allow to cool.

For perfect slices, allow to settle for one day before cutting.
