Quick and Easy Onion Beer Bread

Recipe by Julesong
READY IN: 1hr 30mins
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Using a cheese grater with small holes, grate the two portions of sharp cheddar cheese.
  • In a large bowl combine together the flour, baking powder, onion soup mix, basil, garlic powder, and sugar; stir in the grated cheese and chopped green onion.
  • Gradually pour in the beer, stirring with a fork until just blended and beer is incorporated.
  • Grease the bottom of a 9"x5" loaf pan and spread the dough in the pan.
  • Chop the additional green onion and sprinkle evenly over the surface of bread dough for topping (you can substitute chopped thinly sliced yellow onion for this, if you like).
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean from the middle.
  • Remove bread from oven; combine the Parmesan and grated cheddar, and sprinkle it over the top of the still-hot loaf.
  • Let the bread stand in the pan for 10 minutes on a wire rack, then turn out and let cool for another 5 or so minutes before slicing and/or serving.
  • You can make this bread ahead of time- if you're going to serve it later, wrap it in foil and at the time of serving re-heat it in a 325 degree oven for about 15 minutes; it's really very tasty the day after it's prepared, so you might consider making it a day ahead of when you want to serve it.
