I stumbled upon this Guinness Tea Loaf recipe from 'The Secret Tea Room'. Not only does this loaf taste soft and moist with only a slight tinge of stout, it's extremely easy to make. I've tweaked the method a little and reduced the amount of sugar in the recipe. Hope some of you may like to try it and I'll be glad to have your feedback!
Recipe for Guinness Tea Loaf (adapted from The Secret Tea Room with modification)

- 60 gm pitted dates, chopped
- 165 ml Guinness stout
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 135 gm self-raising flour
- 100 gm light brown sugar
- Icing sugar (optional)
- Add Guinness stout to dried fruits, cover and leave overnight in the refrigerator.
- Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and stir in the sugar to mix well.
- Mix in the beaten egg followed by the Guinness and dried fruits. Stir just to combine.
- Pour into a parchment lined 8.1/2 x 4.1/2 x 3 inch loaf pan.
- Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 40 to 50 mins. or till golden brown. Test with a skewer if it turns out clean.
- Remove from oven and let cool in pan for about 10 mins. before lifting the loaf onto a wire rack to cool completely.
