Irish Beer Bread

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!  To celebrate this boozy green day, I’m sharing an incredibly easy recipe for delicious vegan beer bread.  There are lots of versions out there, and I tried to find the easiest one and then veganize it.  Hope you enjoy, and as my Auntie Pat would say, “wear green!”  Have a great Saint Patrick’s Day!

1 bottle of beer (I used Killian’s Irish Red)

Heat the oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, sift the flour through a fine mesh strainer (or sifter) then add in the baking powder, salt and sugar.  Whisk gently, then add the bottle of beer.

Pour into a loaf pan that has been greased with some earth balance.  Leave the lumps and bumps and pour the melted butter over the mixture.

Cook for 1 hour, and let sit a few minutes before taking out of the pan.  Enjoy with some vegan butter or with your favorite soup.
