Make some Guinness Bread this St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from EyeCandyTO.  Why not make some Guinness Beer Bread with all that leftover beer – if you have any that is 😉

See below for this delicious recipe!


Ever wonder what to do with any leftover beer?  Usually one of those days of the year is right after St. Patrick’s Day.  This recipe is the easiest bread recipe you will find…  no kneading, no mess, no need to overwork the dough or even rest it.  Give it a try with the leftover beer or make it for sandwiches or as accompaniment for soups and stews for St. Patrick’s Day.



3 cups flour

1 Tbsp baking powder

3 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp Kosher salt

1 bottle or large can of Guinness bear at room temperature (12 ounces)

1/4 cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven at 375ºF
  2. In a mixing bowl (glass, ceramic or stainless steel) combine all dry ingredients.  Use a whisk to better incorporate them.
  3. Add all the beer at once mixing as little as possible using a spatula.  The batter should be lumpy and not over mixed.
  4. Pour the batter into a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan and brush with melted butter.  Bake in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.  Try inserting it deep in the middle of the loaf to check.
  5. Remove from the oven and turn out onto a rack to cool.


  • Other beers may be used, just keep in mind that different beers will impart different flavours.
  • Bread is on the denser side, but it is truly delicious!
