Guinness Bread

Guinness Bread, this quick bread requires no kneading or rising time and who could resist that subtle Guinness tang!

This bread is a quick bread, no rising or kneading required. The Guinness imparts a subtle yeast flavour to the bread, making it perfect to be slathered with real butter and topped with dressed prawns, smoked salmon or a sharp mature cheese.

The Guinness, well I think it would be fair to say that Guinness is our national drink. That distinctive ebony body, the creamy top and each glass gilded with golden harp, it is synonymous with all things Irish.

Peppermint St. Patrick's Day Milkshake. Good Food Shared

So this year, St. Patrick's day is the start of two and a half weeks of school holidays...Yay!! We can't wait.

Now lets be clear here, it's not as if we've been killing ourselves with spelling tests, Irish reading and history projects, last week was a four day week -with the school being closed for the election - the previous week was mid term and prior to that we had a snow day!
