Delicious quick white cheddar beer bread made with your favorite pale ale beer.
Baking and cooking with beer has always been something that I enjoy. In the past year, and few months in particular, I have really been enjoying discovering new ways to cook and bake with beer.
Since I can't currently drink beer, I figured the next best thing was to try and cook and bake with it, right? I mean… totally logical.
So I've been making all the beer things and have a bunch more that I am currently working on in the kitchen. And since I'm such a sucker for carbs and bread, I found it only fitting to share another beer bread recipe with you.
I know, I know… carbs bad. But I can't help myself. haha I just love them so.
This is a “quick bread” recipe. Meaning that it doesn't require yeast, proofing, or needing to allow a dough to rise. Just mix up all the ingredients and pop it in the oven and you're good to go.
This bread is great as a little appetizer for when friends come over. You can spread it with just about anything you like… jam, butter, or drizzle it with some honey, or just eat it plain. Either way you can't go wrong!
