If you like an Irish stout, you won't be able to resist the beer flavor of this vegan Irish beer bread recipe. The recipe is lightly spiced with cinnamon and just a light dash of nutmeg so that the stout flavors really stand out.
I call this Irish beer bread recipe "happy" because it calls for just a bit under 12 oz of beer, meaning you need to take a sip before using. Careful—just a taste!
With no eggs and no dairy, this is the perfect vegan Irish beer bread for vegetarians, vegans, or anyone following an egg-free or dairy-free diet on St. Patrick's Day. Enjoy!
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 12 ounces stout beer (take a small sip first, otherwise, there's just a bit too much!)
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 2/3 cup walnuts (chopped)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Optional: dash nutmeg
Combine all of the ingredients and mix them well.
Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes at 350 F.
Making beer bread (and vegan beer bread at that) could not be any easier. Enjoy!
