Cheesy beer bread

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.

    Mmmm, I like that this doesn’t require yeast. I don’t have good luck with yeast. Yum.

    I love Katie’s recipe too–always well received!

  5. Wow, this looks fantastic! We have friends who are always taunting us with tales of their home-baked bread, but the whole yeast — rising — resting — *thing* was always so daunting. We usually get our artisan bread from Panera or one of the local supermarkets (and most of our everyday bread from one of the many bakeries in our area which make Italian or Portuguese-Italian bread) but this looks amazingly easy to make. We even have all the ingredients! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
