This recipe was adapted from our Cheesy Beer Bread recipe which in turn was adapred from a recipe in Cook’s Country Magazine and makes one 9 inch loaf. We changed it up even more to fit a German style party we were throwing! Hope you enjoy!
1 cup aged white cheddar (shredded or 1 cup sharp cheddar and 2 diced jalpenos)
1 cup aged sharp cheddar (cut into 1/4 cubes or 1 cup sharp cheddar)
2 green onions (chopped)
1 (12 oz) bottle German Lager
3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
4 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp unsalted sweet European butter (melted)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh crack pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl combine the cheeses, green onion, paprika, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper. Fold in the beer and mix until well combined. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading evenly to the corners. Drizzle butter evenly over the top of the batter and place pan on the middle baking rack. Bake 45-50 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the bread loaf.
Remove loaf from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Once cooled turn it out on to a baking rack and cool completly (we like to eat it when it is a little warm.) Slice and enjoy!
