This deliciously soft loaf is great for all the beer lovers out there. With rich undertones of cheese and beer, this loaf would be a real treat to bake for Father's Day, or even an alternative choice of bread for a Ploughman's lunch. Plus, no yeast is required for this recipe due to the inclusion of the beer. Choose your favourite hard cheese (cheddars work best) and a lighter beer. Light lagers work best so the flavour is not overpowering. If you have a 500ml bottle, you'll have enough left over for a little drink while you bake!

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C fan, 375°F, gas mark 5)

  2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat, and fry onions for 10 minutes until brown, stirring occasionally. Stir in pepper and garlic cook for 1 minute.

  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in to large bowl. Using a whisk; make a well in center, add onion mixture, cheese and beer to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.

  4. Spoon the mix into a well greased loaf pan and drizzle 1 tbsp of melted butter over the top.

  5. Bake for 35 minutes. Drizzle the remaining butter over the loaf and bake for an additional 25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the centre. Let the loaf cool for 5 minutes then turn out of the pan and on to a cooling rack.
