This moist ‘n malty quick-bread brings you the Luck of the Irish on St Patrick’s Day or Any Day!

Spray an 8×8 – inch baking pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, thoroughly mix:

  • 2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 c. large-flake oats
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar (NOT packed)
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

You may need to break up lumps of brown sugar as you stir.

Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.

In another bowl, combine:

  • 1 1/2 c. amber ale
  • 1 c. buttermilk (well-shaken)
  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • Add to dry ingredients and gently stir just until flour is incorporated.

Pour batter into pan. Over the top, evenly sprinkle:

  • 2 Tbsp. large-flake oats

Cooking Instructions: Heat oven to 375F/190C. Bake approx. 40-45 min, OR until browned and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack before slicing. Delicious with stew, chili, soup. Also nice with cheddar cheese or honey & butter!
