Cheesy beer breadPosted: November 3, 2009
I needed a side for our chili tonight and was growing sick of corn bread and crusty bread. I had remembered a beer cheese bread recipe I saved a while back and decided to whip it up today. This recipe is quite easy and very quick to make and paired with our chili perfectly! A great, comforting addition to any chili, stew, soup or fall meal!
2 c. all purpose flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 c. shredded sharp cheddar
12 oz. bottle of lager or stout
2 Tbsp butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare loaf pan for baking.In large bowl, combine flours, sugar, baking powder, salt, and garlic powder. Whisk to combine well. Add cheese and whisk to combine. Slowly add beer to dry ingredients and stir lightly until combined. Knead dough lightly until it just comes together. Place into prepared loaf pan and pour melted butter over top. Place in oven to bake for 55-60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean. Let cool or serve warm.
