Cheesy Beer-Batter Bread
Comment on this recipe
4 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded
4 ounces Cheddar cheese in 1/4-inch cubes
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
12-ounce can light-bodied beer, such as Miller Lite
4 tablespoons butter, melted
Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease 9x5-inch loaf pan. Combine shredded and cubed cheeses, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper in large bowl. Stir in beer and mix until well combined. Pour into loaf pan, spreading batter to corners. Drizzle melted butter evenly over top of batter.
Bake until deep golden-brown and toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean, 45-60 minutes. Cool bread in pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto rack. Cool completely before slicing.
Notes: May add 8 slices crisp bacon. For easy clean-up line loaf pan with foil.
