Father’s Day Beer Bread

A GRAND TOUR OF THE UK & IRELAND – baked goods from region to region

It’s June and we are celebrating Father’s Day with a baked beer stein! The recipe we are sharing is based on IREKS DONKER BREAD MIX. This easy-to-use mix has a quantity of addition of 50 % and imparts a full flavour and aroma mainly due to the inclusion of roasted wheat malt flour. This month’s recipe includes traditional Scottish milk stout, brewed within Cairngorms National Park in the Highlands of Scotland. The park is the largest in the whole of the UK with approx. 18,000 people living in the 4,528 km2 that it covers. One of the largest communities in the area is that of Aviemore, a popular year-round destination that is well-known for its snow sports, particularly skiing. Aviemore has a population of approx. 3,000 people and has tourism at its heart, attracting more than 1,000,000 visitors a year.

Father’s Day is celebrated around the world in more than 100 countries with the actual date varying. It was originally introduced to honor fatherhood and paternal bonds but history and origins are quite different from region to region around the world. In Catholic Europe for example, the celebration of fatherhood dates back to at least 1508. In the UK, on the other hand, the day does not have a long tradition, having only been celebrated since sometime after the Second World War.

For all the Dads out there, Happy Father’s Day!
