Cheddar + Chive Guinness Bread

Standard

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!
