Author: Kitchens
  • 2 Cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 Cup unbleached flour
  • 6 Tablespoon brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup butter (1/2 stick); melted
  • 1 1/2 Cups beer
  • 3/4 Cup raisins
  • 2 Tablespoons natural bran or oatmeal; for garnish
  1. Plump raisins in water for 5 minutes, drain.
  2. Stir together whole-wheat and unbleached flours, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and caraway seeds. Make well in center and stir in egg and butter. Stir in beer. Stir by hand to make soft batter. Stir in raisins.
  3. Spoon into greased 9-inch round cake pan. Sprinkle with bran or oatmeal. Bake at 375 degrees until top is dry to touch, 40 to 45 minutes. Top will be slightly cracked. Remove from oven and cool before serving.
Don't use green beer in this. A robust stout, beer or ale will lend a hearty jolt. Serve with a piping hot plate of Irish stew.
