Spiced Stout Banana Nut Bread

This makes a great breakfast - the beer has coffee in it! BUT the most important thing about this recipe is that you are using fresh spices - cooking with inferior or old spices is like cooking with little cardboard flakes!

Spiced Stout Banana Nut Bread


  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (about 3)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground Jamaican ginger
  • 2 cups Trading Post Brewing Breakfast Stout
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups raisins


Preheat oven to 350 F . Lightly grease two 9X5 inch loaf pans. In a large bowl cream the brown sugar, banana, eggs, vanilla and oil. Set aside. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, ginger & cinnamon. Alternately blend the flour mixture and the beer into the creamed mixture. Stir in the walnuts & raisins and blend well. Pour into the two greased 9X5 loaf pans. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 1 hour or until an inserted toothpick emerges dry and clean. Leave in pan for 15 minutes to cool before turning out to cool completely on rack.
