Celebrate St Paddy’s day with Guinness Beer Bread

As St Paddy’s day quickly approaches, I feel the need to celebrate in a more traditional way… but I am stuck with a problem (or rather a Lenten sacrifice)… of not being able to consume alcohol from Monday – Saturday… and now I have all these cans of Guinness sitting in my fridge… chilling to just the right temperature… whatever shall I do???

1 can of Guinness Draught = 1 loaf of tasty bread...

And what do you know… Dr Google came to the rescue! In fact – the internet was littered with different beer bread recipes … some with yeast, some without – but I found one that looked easy on a website called www.food.com and posted by felix4067  (in fact – a little too easy to be honest)… but thought… What the heck… it is mid-week and I can afford to experiment this evening! (and the result was a combination of about 2 or 3 recipes… so experimentation is really the topic here :))

And what did I end up with?? A Very tasty dinner of Guinness Bread slathered in *laughing cow* cheese and thinly shaved slices of chicken… and a loaf that ISN’T stale a day later!!! Which begs the next important question… “when will I make this again?” and I think that I can safely say that it will be on the menu for Sunday night Supper Club!!
