Beer Week: Apple Cheddar Beer Bread

It's me again - I'm stealing my husband's week of spotlight for one day to share a recipe I made with one of his beers :)

Apple Cheddar Beer Bread - bite of apple, goodness of cheese, plus a little beer! #bread #recipe #beer

What you need:
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 small apple, diced
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar, shredded
  • 1 tsp. minced onion
  • 6 sprigs thyme, take off leaves and discard stems
  • 12 oz. beer, at room temperature
  • 1 egg, beaten with 2 Tbsp. water
Combine flour, sugar, sea salt, and baking powder in a bowl.

Add apple, cheddar, onion, and thyme. Stir.

Slowly stir in beer.

Place batter into a loaf pan and smooth out the top.

Brush with egg wash.

Bake at 375* for 45 minutes.
Cool for 10 minutes before eating.

This also makes for a great gift - just do step 1 and place in a Ziploc baggie. Place the dry ingredients, plus one beer, plus a hand towel or something decorative into a loaf pan. Tie it up with twine or decorate it similarly...and attach a little card that tells them what different add-ins there are, like this apple cheddar, and the only ingredients other than add-ins that they will need is the egg wash. Then just include the directions on how to make! You can find more variations and different add-ins you can do: here.
