If you are hosting a St. Patrick's Day Party this year or just having a festive dinner Irish Brown Bread is a must make recipe.

I first saw this recipe over at That Skinny Chick Can Bake and knew I had to give it a try. Liz said it was the most authentic recipes for Irish Brown Bread she has come across after a trip to Ireland.

Since we won't be going to Ireland anytime soon we try to do the next best thing by enjoying authentic recipes whenever possible.

I made Irish Brown Bread to go with Irish Guinness Beef Stew I'll hopefully be sharing next week, but it would also be amazing with Corned Beef and Cabbage, or just a great sandwich loaf.

I couldn't believe how quickly the bread was devoured, but the texture was perfect. I switched up the original recipe by adding some Guinness to accompany the stew for a lighter loaf, adding a little more brown sugar, and sprinkling some quick oats over the top to make it look pretty.

The best part is Irish Brown Bread is so easy to make.

Here's how to make Irish Brown Bread:

Toasted Wheat Germ and Wheat Bran on a cookie sheet for Irish Brown Bread.

Preheat oven to 350°. Spread 3 tablespoons Wheat Germ, and 3 tablespoons Wheat Bran on a cookie sheet.

Bake for 5-8 minutes until just lightly starting to brown.

Mixing bowl with whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, wheat bran, wheat germ, brown sugar, quick oats, baking soda, and salt to make Irish Brown Bread recipe.

In a stand mixer or bowl add:

  • 1 3/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour

  • Toasted Wheat Bran and Wheat Germ

  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
Mix until well combined.

Butter added to flour mixture for Irish Brown Bread recipe.

Guiness Beer poured into mixing bowl to make Irish Brown Bread.

Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan and finish cooling on baking rack before cutting.

It's delicious sliced and toasted with a little jam and butter too..
