Cheese and Beer Bread

As you would expect from a typical Canadian guy, Tony likes beer. A lot. This means we almost always have beer on hand, which is great news for me because I can make this beer bread whenever I want. It’s the perfect accompaniment for a hearty soup or stew, and it also makes great sandwiches. Best of all, it’s a cinch to put together. There’s no rising or kneading required, but it still has a similar quality to yeast bread because of the beer.
I made this bread to serve with soup on one cold, rainy evening. It really hit the spot. Bennett liked it most of all, refusing to eat anything besides the bread for dinner. We had to cut him off until he ate his soup, which resulted in a very dramatic and lengthy temper tantrum. Don’t you just love 4-year-olds?

Cheese and Beer Bread

3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 can beer (room temperature)
2 tbsp butter, divided

Preheat oven to 375F. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cheese, onion powder and garlic powder. Pour in beer slowly and stir together until combined. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan. Drizzle with 1 tbsp melted butter. Bake for 35 minutes. Drizzle with another tbsp of melted butter. Bake for an additional 25 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and finish cooling on rack.
