Posts tagged ‘Cheddar Beer Bread’
I once had a magnet that said something to the effect of “I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even add it to the food”. I feel like everything tastes better with a splash of red wine. In lieu of my normal wine, I had a hankering for a beer yesterday and set my sights on Cheddar Beer bread. The process is enhanced by the consumption of the remaining beer.
There are an awful lot of beers out there that you can use in this bread. Being a Cleveland girl, it was almost a given that I would use something from Great Lakes Brewing Company. My favorite is the Dortmunder Gold.
3 Cups all purpose flour
1 Tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbs sugar
¾ tsp dried thyme
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 ¼ cups grated cheddar cheese
12oz Beer (1 bottle).
Mix all ingredients together, mixing in beer last. Batter should be the consistency of bisquick.
Spoon into a well greased bread pan and bake at 350 degrees (f) for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
Ideally, you should let it cool for at least 25 minutes before you slice it. But I think everybody knows that it fairly unlikely you will.
