Chocolate Cherry Beer Bread

After making the Sweet Potato Beer Bread last week, I thought I'd like to try another recipe, this time with Guinness.  The combination of dark chocolate and dried cherries seemed like a perfect match for Guinness.  Feel free to use any beer that suits your taste!

Makes 16 slices

Ingredients

3 cups whole wheat flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 440mL can Guinness
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1/3 cup dried cherries
Canola spray, for greasing

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Grease a 9x5 loaf pan with canola spray.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.  Mix until combined. 
Pour in beer and quickly mix it together while beer is foamy.  Do not overmix.  Fold in cherries and chocolate chips.

Pour batter into loaf pan and use a spatula to spread evenly (batter will be thick and sticky).  Bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
