Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch baking pan.
  2. Mix together the oats, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. In a separate large bowl, stir together the butter, vanilla, buttermilk, and Guinness® beer. Pour the flour mixture into the beer mixture, and gently stir until well blended. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan, and sprinkle with additional oats if desired.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, then turn the temperature down to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C), and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Turn the oven off, open the door, and allow to cool for 30 minutes in the oven before turning out onto a wire rack.

This was super! ....moist, flavorful, hearty, and relatively healthy. First of all, I did not use Guinness. I had a Smithwick's on hand so I had to make the best of it. I did not have buttermilk so I used 1 Tbsp of lemon juice mixed with 1c milk and let it sit for 5 min. I used splenda brown sugar mix, light butter, and baked it in an 8x6 pan for ten minutes less than stated. It was perfect and just may have to replace my go-to beer bread recipe from this site (whole wheat beer bread). Loved this this one had oats. Also, I wasn't expecting it to be as sweet as it was and may decrease the sugar next time. Although my sweet tooth can't complain. Thank you for the recipe!

Interesting recipe but I don't think this one is for me. I love Guinness and I don't mind a bitter taste usually, but this one was just a little off for me. It didn't quite taste sweet and it didn't quite taste like Guinness-- it was kind of like drinking OJ after brushing your teeth. The recipe was easy and turned out beautifully, I guess it just isn't for me.

This bread was awesome. I doubled the recipe and baked it in loaf pans. I thought that two loaf pans would overflow, so I put it in three, but when I make it again, I'll do a single recipe in a single loaf pan. I think that will be perfect. I too served it with honey butter. I will definitely make it again.

I have had really good beer bread...but this tops them all and what's even better is that this recipe was so easy I had no problem, whatsoever, following it. I did use quick-cooking steel cut Irish oats in mine and I really like the rustic texture they gave this bread. This bread is sweet, it's savory...altogether delicious...thanks for a great recipe!

Try loaf pan next time. Oven Temp seems high at 425 then 400 try 350?. Seemed done after 1/2 hr on outside but inside wasn't entirely done.

Heavy, tasty bread. I was worried the batter was too liquidy, but it turned out great! Sweeter than I was expecting with only 1/2 cup of brown sugar, but I can't wait to have some for breakfast tomorrow :)

So dense and good! I made this to go with Beer Cheese Soup V (from this site) and beer margaritas -- it was a great dinner!

I've never made bread with beer in it before, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I will say with no hesitation that we enjoyed this. The only thing that I did differently was take the bread out of the oven 15 minutes early...it was done. It is a heavy bread, but has a lighter texture than say brown bread. It turned out beautifully moist, not too sweet, with just a hint of the Guinness. It really was delish with butter and honey, but I think this would be equally good with a hot bowl of soup or stew. Thanks Dolly for introducing me to a fabulous new recipe using beer.
