Cheese and Beer Bread Recipe

Yields15 Servings

Cheese and beer seem to go together and this recipe combines them to make a savory and salty bread. The cheese is incorporated into the dough and also sprinkled on the top after the rise and before the baking cycle begins. You can use any cheese or beer variety and the beer actually helps with the rising and the overall texture and taste of the bread.

 10 ounces beer, at room temperature
 4 ounces shredded or diced cheddar cheese
 4 ounces shredded or diced Monterey Jack cheese
 1 tablespoon sugar
 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
 3 cups bread flour
 1 tablespoon butter at room temperature divided into opposing corners of the bread pan
 1 teaspoon of active dry yeast or bread machine yeast

On stovetop or in microwave, heat beer and cheese together until just warm. Cheese doesn’t have to melt. Stir to blend and then pour the mixture in the bread pan.


Once again, let it cool to 110°F./43°C.


Add remaining ingredients in the order listed in the recipe unless your manufacturer recommends a different order.


Select Basic White setting, 1.5 pound loaf and medium crust. Push start.


When done, remove the loaf from the bread pan and let cool on a cooling rack and serve.
