I love a great beer bread recipe, especially for St. Patrick’s Day. This Guinness version comes together super fast and couldn’t be easier to make. Five minutes of work will reward you with a heavenly aroma throughout your house and a warm, crusty loaf in under an hour.
Happy St. Paddy’s day! This recipe I’m sharing with you today is by far the best beer bread I have ever made or eaten. It has a wonderful flavor (you can definitely taste the Guinness), great texture, is very moist, dense, and as you can see, – a very impressive sized loaf! It rises beautifully (maybe a little lopsided, but that’s OK) and produces a nice, crunchy outer crust All that matters here is the TASTE, which you will love.
