My Goodness My Guinness Beer Bread
4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup chopped dates
3/4 cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
1 440 ml (14 ounce) can Guinness
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Add the beer and stir until mixed. It will be tough going towards the end. Spoon into large greased loaf pan and press down to make sure all the corners are filled—you might want to grease your hands first so the dough doesn’t stick.
Bake for 50 minutes or until the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when you knock on it. Remove from pan immediately and let cool.
If you prefer a less rustic-looking loaf, you can knead the dough before putting it into the pan.
If you prefer a softer crust, brush melted butter over the top once the bread has been removed from the oven.
Serving suggestion: Slather with cream cheese, or serve with soup or as part of a ploughman's lunch.
