Cheddar and Chive Beer Bread

contest winner icon

I am not in to baking bread but this recipe is so darn tasty and easy that I simply can't resist ;-) Hint: You can substitute the chives with basil, cilantro, or even minced onions as yummy variations.



  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh chives, chopped, or 2 tsp dried
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely grated
  • 12 oz. beer, room temperature


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, chives, and cheddar in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in beer and mix just until combined. Batter will be thick. Spread in a greased 8-inch loaf pan and bake about 45 minutes. (test after 40 minutes with a toothpick to be on the safe side)

Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool 10 more minutes before serving.
