Guinness Beer Bread



Guinness stout beer bread .....My first attempt at baking with Guinness stout.  This is a no- yeast bread, very simple and quick to prepare.  It also saves a lot of time as being without yeast, there's no necessity for the dough to prove.  I made this all within 1.15 hrs.
















As you can see, the texture is dense but the taste is rather unique.  That goes for the shape too!  This bread is best eaten fresh and you can have them with stew, soup or  even good old butter and jam.  I'll let you know what I served this with in my next post ..... so stay tuned!

Recipe for Guinness Beer Bread

    16 oz plain flour

Stir in the sugar and mix well with a balloon whisk
Add Guinness stout, beaten egg and stir till just blended

Lower  the temperature to 180 deg C for another 25 mins.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
