I love the ease & convenience of beer bread. I decided to make a loaf of beer bread with savory minced rosemary & shredded cheddar cheese added. It was delicious and oh-so-easy too.
Oh man, you’re *SO* gonna want to read this!
Beer Bread Flavor Variation Of Rosemary & Cheddar
Beer bread is easy to make. It’s a mix-n-bake bread that gives lots of satisfaction with not much effort.
My basic quick beer bread recipe ingredients are:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
Rosemary/Cheddar Beer Bread Flavor Add-In’s
To turn plain beer bread into a rosemary and cheddar cheese flavor variation, just add:
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 Tablespoons minced, fresh rosemary
4 Tablespoons olive oil (to brush on top)
Homemade Bread For Dinner Party
We were invited to a family dinner party and I decided to bring homemade bread.
I already shared with you my Italian Pesto/Dried Tomato Beer Bread recipe.
It was made with basil pesto with chunks of my homemade dehydrated Italian-seasoned tomato leather.
And it was delicious, make no mistake. But what about a Rosemary/Cheddar version?
I have these big beautiful rosemary plants right outside my back door bursting with fragrant goodness. So why not use them #amiright??
So I went outside & pulled a few stems of rosemary, minced them up finely and set it aside.
Rosemary/Cheddar Beer Bread Ingredients
For my rosemary bread I wanted to use a sharp cheddar cheese along with my minced rosemary. I thought the sharpness of the cheese would offer a flavor punch to the bread without having to use too much.
So to the standard beer bread dry ingredients I added the 12-oz bottle of beer. Then I stirred in about 3 Tablespoons of minced fresh rosemary and a cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
I used a pastry brush to oil the 9×5 glass loaf pan with olive oil. Then I poured in the batter and smoothed it into the pan.
I brushed the top of the dough with a little more olive oil & added a light sprinkle of minced fresh rosemary & also a sprinkling of coarse salt.
Baking A Loaf Of Beer Bread
I preheated the oven to 350 degrees F. then placed the loaf pan into the oven and baked the bread for the first 45 minutes baking time.
Then I pulled the pan from the oven and brushed 4 Tablespoons of olive oil over the top surface of the bread. This causes the crust to remain nice & soft.
Then I returned it to the oven for the final 10 minutes baking time.
When the bread was finished baking I removed the pan from the oven. After it cooled slightly I slid a butter knife between the bread & the pan to loosen the bread to make it easier to remove.
Then I placed the still-hot bread on a baker’s rack & covered it with a clean kitchen towel to allow it to cool completely.
Rosemary & Cheddar Cheese Beer Bread A Hit!
So how did it taste? Aaaah-mazing! RancherMan & I loved the subtle flavor of this Rosemary/Cheddar version.
The bread was dense but soft. And the sharp cheddar married beautifully with the minced fresh rosemary.
Oh, and it offered a completely different taste explosion when you cut it into slices and toasted it.
Oh. My. Goodness!!
I’m certainly counting this recipe as a screaming success! It will be an easy go-to recipe when asked to bring something for a covered dish or gathering.
