  1. Step 1

    Place all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Step 2

    Add the butter and rub into the dry ingredients until it resembles fine breadcrumbs - I recommend working quickly as the mixture can easily become greasy if over mixed, or mixed using too warm hands.
  3. Step 3

    Add the milk, black treacle molasses, and the Guinness.
  4. Step 4

    Mix to create a wet dough.
  5. Step 5

    Grease a standard loaf tin, add the wet dough and bake in the oven for 40 - 45 mins or until the bread is well risen and thoroughly cooked. 
  6. Step 6

    Leave for 10 minutes in the tin, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
  7. Step 7

    Eat while slightly warm if you like, or allow to go completely cold. Delicious with salty butty and Irish smoked salmon, cold meats or cheeses. The recipe comes courtesy of the home of Guinness, the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, Ireland. The storehouse was a fermentation plant for 84 years but is now a 7-story visitor center.
