Cheddar Beer Bread
65 mins (prep 15, cooking 50)
7 ingredients
8 servings
A "rustic"-type bread that goes well with chili or stew (I recommend serving it with Crock Pot Wild Mushroom Beef Stew or Never-Entered-In-A-Contest-But-Still-Super-Good Chili). This bread originally had a mix of 8 oz. beer and 4 oz. hard cider (instead of all beer), and you could do that as a variation on this recipe. I use all beer when I make it (a dark beer is probably best, like Guinness Draught or Shiner Bock, which are the two I usually use), and I adapted this recipe from a cooking blog that I frequently read. Note: When cutting this bread, I suggest putting down wax paper over the cutting board; otherwise, you will need to wash butter from your cutting board after each time you slice the bread. UPDATE: I have used 6 Tablespoons of butter (3 on bottom and 3 on top), and the bread still came out great. So, anywhere from 6-8 Tablespoons of butter will work in this recipe.
