In a saucepan add the Guinness® Stout Beer (1 3/4 cup), Mixed Fruit Peel (1 cup), Raisins (1 cup), Cherry (3/4 cup), Brown Sugar (3/4 cup), Honey (2 tablespoon), West Indian Browning (1 tablespoon), Molasses (1/2 tablespoon), and Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon). 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.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (176 degrees C).
Now it’s time mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In goes the All-Purpose Flour (3 cup),
Baking Powder (2 1/2 teaspoon), Ground Cinnamon (1 teaspoon), Ground Nutmeg (1 teaspoon), Ground Allspice (1 teaspoon), Ground Ginger (1 teaspoon) and Salt (1/4 teaspoon). Stir well to incorporate. Now add the Butter (4 tablespoon), 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.
Place the dough into a greased/flour-dusted baking pan (about 11x5 inches).
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.
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!
