St. Patty’s Day in Savannah is pretty crazy, so we tend to stay away from downtown to avoid the mayhem. Instead, why not stay at home, bake some bread + drink some beer? Try out my version of The Kitchn’s Guinness Bread:
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 (12 oz) bottle Guinness Extra Stout
- 1 cup shredded Cabot Reserve Aged Cheddar Cheese
- 1/4 cup chopped chives
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
Preheat your oven to 375 F. Prepare your bread loaf pan with either parchment paper or a light coating of butter.
In your stand mixer (or medium bowl), whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, + salt.
Then pour in your beer + mix until the dry ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.
Fold in your chives + shredded cheddar, reserving 1/4 cup of the cheese for later. Transfer mixture to your prepared loaf pan + pour the melted butter on top. Place in the oven + bake for 30 minutes. Cover the top of the loaf with the remaining cheese + continue to bake for another 15-20 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool bread in the pan for 5 minutes. Turn out on a cooling rack, slice when warm + serve. Don’t forget to crack open a Guinness to drink as well!
HAPPY ST. PATTY’S DAY!
