Cheddar Beer Bread
I have worn a cardigan more times than I've worn a coat in the past three weeks. Sometimes even the sweater has been too heavy.
That changed this weekend when we were working on our teardrop trailer out in the garage. It was only 20˚ and it was miserable to be outside. (That, and the fact that I caught the flu).
So, it looks like I'm just going to have to trade in my sweaters for winter coats for a while longer and I'll also be trading in my light, fruit-filled meals for carb-heavy snacks like beer bread.
CHEDDAR BEER BREAD
3 c. flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2/3 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 bottle beer
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
1. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cheese.
2. Stir in beer with a wooden spoon until well combined.
3. Coat the bottom of a loaf pan with half of the melted butter. Spoon in the batter and brush on the remaining melted butter.
4. Bake at 350˚ for 50-60 minutes.
