Kiss Me I’m (not) Irish!

It’s St. Patrick’s Day also known as the day that everyone, even nice Jewish girls like me, pretend to be Irish. I figured if I was going to be Irish for the day, I should whip up something Irish inspired (notice I said inspired, not authentic).

I love this recipe from Food Network for Beer Bread! It’s so easily adaptable so I usually make a cinnamon raisin version using Blue Moon. The bread always turns out heavenly and my whole (tiny) apartment smells like cinnamon! For St. Patrick’s Day though, I decided to use Guinness and Caraway seeds and I am quite pleased with the results. Delish!

Guinness and Caraway Bread

Guinness and Caraway Beer Bread

  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1.5 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Caraway Seeds
  • 12 oz Guinness
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter melted

Preheat oven to 375. Butter a loaf pan.

Dump all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Pour beer in slowly. Mix well.

Pour batter in to greased loaf pan. Mixture will be very thick and sticky.

Bake for 50 minutes. Brush with melted butter and cook for 5 more minutes.
