My absolute favorite way to celebrate St. Patrick’s day isn’t drinking a green shake or smoothie, or even indulging in mint treats. Don’t get me wrong, I love a fun and festive green treat but it’s not my go-to holiday item. It is, and will likely always be, baking with Guinness. It’s the only time of year you’ll catch me eagerly popping the top off of a bottle of beer. Sure, I bake bread or whip up a batch of chili or stew with beer other times of the year, but not necessarily with Guinness. That’s a once a year thing for me… reserved for March.

Pair chocolate with Guinness and it’s a heavenly dessert. The flavors go together beautifully – perfectly rich and luscious. If you’ve never tried it, you absolutely must. It’s 100% worth it. And if you have baked with Guinness before, then you know! You don’t have to be a beer drinker to enjoy baking or cooking with it.

I adore a good chocolate Guinness treat. Over the years, I’ve shared a variety of Guinness cake and cupcakes. Given that I’ve been on a serious quick bread kick lately, it only made sense to make a loaf cake version of my favorite seasonal treat!

Perfectly moist homemade Guinness chocolate loaf cake, topped off with silky caramel cream cheese frosting! I’m on team – loaf cakes are for breakfast or dessert. It’s kind of like ‘(eat) dessert first’. Why save it for last? Enjoy it now, not later! I love that when you call something a loaf, you can enjoy it for breakfast. Switch it up and call it cake and it’s suddenly dessert. With or without frosting for both occasions! But trust me, the caramel cream cheese frosting is a winner!

A flavor match made in heaven – chocolate, Guinness, caramel and cream cheese frosting! Truly irresistible!

This will easily become a new family favorite. I highly recommend making several loaves of this, as it’s guaranteed to disappear fast! You will 100% be going back for seconds.

This Guinness chocolate loaf cake is a perfect addition to St. Patrick’s day celebrations or as a fun treat for any day of the year! Just be sure to add it to your baking plans asap! You won’t regret it!
