5 Ingredient Guinness Quick Bread

Patrick’s Day or any day of the year. This is a great beer bread to go with your corn beef and cabbage or shepherd’s pie tonight. This recipe is too easy, it’s got just 5 ingredients. It uses self-rising flower, brown sugar, a pinch of salt and Guinness. How could you get any easier? You can substitute all purpose flour in this recipe too, but make sure to add 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and 1/8 teaspoon salt for every cup of flour used. Make sure to also check the date on your self rising flour. 5 Ingredient Guinness Quick Bread Ingredients 3 cups self rising flour 1 cup brown sugar, not packed a pinch of salt 1 – 11.2 oz Bottle of Guinness Butter Method.

I got the recipe out of the Cupcakes! From the Cake Mix Doctor cookbook which my future sister-in-law gave me for Christmas. (Along with a very cute apron, I might add!) If you've never heard of the Cake Mix Doctor, she takes box mixes and adds simple ingredientsto make something that is as easy as a box mix but tastes a little more homemade. Trust me. Start with 1 fresh jalapeno pepper. Slice it in half, remove all the seeds and the membrane (this takes out most of the heat) and dice finely. Next, grate up about a cup of cheddar cheese. In a medium sized bowl, mix 1 egg, a 4.5 oz can of chopped green chiles, and an 8.25 oz can of cream style corn. Add your grated cheese and diced jalapenos, then mix again. Empty an 8.5oz box of corn muffin mix into a large bowl, and form a well in the center. Add in your wet ingredients and stir about 20 times to combine.

Let cool on a rack, then serve. Ingredient recap: BUTTERMILK BISCUITS. I’d never seen or tasted homemade biscuits like this before.

BUTTERMILK BISCUITS

Not dry, uniformly textured and crumbly like your standard baking soda biscuit, these buttermilk beauties were large, tender and extremely flaky. Served warm out of the oven with a quick brushing of melted butter and you have, what is in my opinion, the perfect biscuit. Delicious slathered with butter and drizzled with honey or jam, these biscuits are also substantial enough to hold up to more serious fillings like ham and pepper jelly or crispy fried chicken and gravy like the guys at Pine State Biscuits do on their famous Reggie.

This is a solid recipe that produced outstanding results the very first time I tried it out — then again, it doesn’t hurt to have your mom to show you the ropes the first time through. Recipe from chef, Scott Peacock courtesy of The New York Times Making your own baking powder by combining fresh cream of tartar and baking soda will produce biscuits with the most lift.

Hope that you all have had a lovely week, and that a relaxing weekend lies ahead. I’m looking forward to some friend’s-birthday-celebrating, farmers-marketing, coffee-(friends)-dating, cake-baking, church-enjoying, and sleeping-inning here in my little corner of the world this weekend. OH, and the thing I’m perhaps most excited about — choir-directing. Did I mention on here that I’m leading an Easter choir at my church?! I’m kind of over the moon about it. Anyway, warm wishes coming your way for a good weekend ahead. Read more Ever since my friends and I met for a tapas happy hour at our neighborhood Spanish restaurant a few weeks ago, I’ve had sangria on my mind. So of course, when I found myself in the fruit section at the market this week trying to decide what kind of sangria to make for our weekly neighbor night, I immediately thought of sangria. …oh good grief, why had I never thought of this before?
