Guinness Bread

I love Guinness and I love bread so why don’t combine the two things together?

250 gr strong white flour
250 gr rye flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dried yeast
2 teaspoons caraway seeds
300 ml Guinness
1 spoon black treacle
olive oil

1. Mix together in a bowl the strong white flour, the rye flour, salt, yeast, and caraway seeds.
2. Warm the Guinness with the treacle in a saucepan, then mix them with the dry ingredients to obtain a moist dough. Add more Guinness if the dough is still dry. Knead the dough, cover it with cling film and leave it to rise for 2 hours in a warm place.
3. Knead the dough and shape it into a loaf. Place it on an oiled baking sheet, sprinkle caraway seeds on top and cover it with a dampened tea towel. Leave it to rise for an hour in a warm place.
4. Remove the tea towel and make few slashes on the top of the loaf. Preheat the oven at 230 degrees, then bake the dough at 200 degrees for 25 minutes.
5. Tap the loaf and if it sounds hollow the bread is ready. Leave it to cool on a wire rack.
