Beer and Cheese Bread
The beer in this recipe makes the bread rise well and gives it a malty flavor, depending on the kind of beer you use. We like using a dark beer. Try this toasted with your favorite soup or stew.
- Ready In:
- 3hrs 20mins
- 3 cups bread flour
- 1 package yeast
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 10 ounces beer, flat
- 4 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 4 ounces grated monterey jack cheese
- Warm beer and cheese over low heat on top of stove or in microwave.
- Cheese doesn't need to melt completely.
- Place the warm beer/cheese mixture and butter into your bread machine.
- Next add the flour, sugar and then the yeast in a little hole dug in the middle of the flour.
- Finally sprinkle the salt around the edges of the flour, away from the yeast.
- Set machine for 2 pound loaf, white bread.
- Every machine is a little different, so please check your instructions and add the ingredients in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
- Let this bread cool almost completely before slicing.

This is pretty tasty. I used some sharp cheese I had laying around and some medium cheddar. I used too much cheese as I had to keep adding flour as it was very sticky. I removed after the rising and punched it down and made 2 loaves for the oven. It rose and fell when it started baking but I think that was my fault. I'll try again using the recommended cheeses.Reply
Oh My!! I must confess I made this bread only b/c for some reason we had an opened can of beer that had been in the fridge for a couple days. So I viewed this as challenge since I hate to waste anything! So I searched Zaar and found this recipe. So glad!! This bread is delicious! I didn't taste the beer much, but we used a light beer. I must admit I made this pretty late and I overshot the cheese by probably 1/2 cup! But I must say I'll probably do it again on purpose! I used sharp cheddar that we had on hand. The bread is moist, soft and will definitely be made again and again! (Will have to 'accidentally' open a can...) :) I made the dough in breadmaker then placed in loaf pan, let it rise for about 1/2 hour, then baked at 350 for about 30 minutes.Reply
