Easy Cheesy Beer Bread

Updated: Jan 1, 2021

Serves 5-8


A quick and easy recipe requires little introduction. This beer bread is all you need to accompany soups, pastas, sandwiches and more! Very simple, difficult to mess up, and insanely delicious.


  • You can use self-raising flour instead of plain flour but you'll have to skip the baking powder and salt.

  • Try different mix-ins if you're feeling bold. A few favourites: bacon, cheese, and chive. Chopped broccoli and thyme. Or olive and rosemary.

  • The cold pats of butter on top of the bread are supremely important for a crunchy crust.

  • A medium ale seems to be the best beer to use but you can give anything a try really! As long it's bubbly and not flat.



  • 3 cups of plain flour

  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • 1/4 cup of white sugar

  • 330mls (1 bottle) of beer

  • 1 cup mild cheddar

  • 1 cup sharp cheddar

  • 6 tablespoons of cold butter, cut into squares


  1. Preheat the oven to 190℃.

  2. Mix together the dry ingredients (not the cheeses). Pour in the beer and use a wooden spoon to bring the dough together. It should be a very wet dough.

  3. Add the cheeses in and use your hands to mix them through.

  4. Pour the dough into a greased bread pan.

  5. Place the butter squares over the top of the dough.

  6. Place the bread into the oven for 1 hour.

  7. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.


Stay Salty
