Irish Brown Bread

Irish Brown Bread is a must make for St. Patricks Day.
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. 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.
