This Cheesy Herb Beer Bread is delicious, super-quick and easy to make. It bakes up into a savory "quick bread" style loaf. This one has shredded cheese and dried herbs added, use what you have on hand! The bread gets bathed in melted butter 2 times while baking, so it has a wonderful, slightly crumbly, buttery crust.
Arrange oven rack to lower position - (so top of loaf will be in center of oven when baked.)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease bottom only of a 9-inch loaf pan
I mix this by hand or with a hand mixer (dough hooks).
In large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, dried herbs and cheese. Pour in beer and stir just until all dry ingredients are mixed in. Try not to over mix.
Pour batter into prepared pan and gently even out with spatula. Pour half the melted butter over the top of the batter. Bake for 30 minutes.
Pour the rest of the butter over the top of the loaf and continue baking for 20-30 minutes more. When done it will be golden brown, will resist when pressed lightly on the top. You can also check by inserting a toothpick into the top of the loaf, it should be clean or only have a few moist crumbs.
Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Loosen edges with thin knife. Remove from pan and cool for 30 minutes on cooling rack before slicing.
Flour:You can use self-rising flour, but omit the baking powder and the salt. When measuring flour, spoon flour into measuring cup and level off. (don't press flour into cup) Don't have flour or need a gluten-free version - stay tuned, working on another recipe right now!Cheese:You can use whatever shredded cheeses you have. I used 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan and 1 cup cheddar.Beer:I used Yuengling Lager - but use what you have on hand. Don't have beer? I have heard you can make this with seltzer water, club soda or any fizzy drink (but I haven't tested this myself, yet..)
