Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
In a saucepan add the Guinness® Stout Beer (1 3/4 cups), Mixed Fruit Peel (1 cup), Raisins (1 cup), Cherry (3/4 cup), Brown Sugar (3/4 cup), Honey (2 Tbsp), West Indian Browning (1 Tbsp), Molasses (1/2 Tbsp), and Vanilla Extract (1 tsp). Place on a medium flame, stir well and as soon as you start seeing bubbles on the edges turn off the stove and set aside to cool.
step 2
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
step 3
Now it’s time mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In goes the All-Purpose Flour (3 cups), Baking Powder (1 Tbsp), Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp), Ground Nutmeg (1 tsp), Ground Allspice (1 tsp), Ground Ginger (1 tsp) and Salt (1/4 tsp). Stir well to incorporate. Now add the Butter (1/4 cup), Egg (1), and everything from the sauce pan. You’ll have some work here. Mix into a dough, but try your best to not over-work it.
step 4
Place the dough into a greased/flour-dusted baking pan (about 11x5 inches).
step 5
Place on the middle rack of the oven. It will take about 1 hour to fully bake. Stick a toothpick through the middle of the bun and if it comes out clean, it’s done.
step 6
Set aside to cool. If desired, brush with a simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar) to give it that classic shine, but don’t slice until it’s fully cooled. Enjoy!
