Beer Bread with Raisins and  CheeseThis is a moist and sweet quick bread.  Serve it with coffee, milk or tea, for breakfast, or just anytime you need a snack.  Great with butter and your kitchen will smell wonderful while it is baking!

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup oil (I used Canola)
5 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
1 egg
1 (12 ounce) bottle beer
1 1/2 cups raisins
Combine raisins and beer and heat to a simmer on top of the stove.  Remove and let stand about 10 minutes.  Mix together dry ingredients with a spoon, add egg, oil and cheese.  Pour in beer and raisins and continue mixing until all ingredients are blended.  Pour into a sprayed 9×5 loaf pan and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 50 – 55 minutes.  Let cool about 12 minutes before removing from pan.  ENJOY!

  1. Beer and cheese is a number 1 combo – put that in a bread and I’m a happy camper!

  2. This recipe is going straight to the to-do list…especially since Hubby bought beer he didn’t particularly fancy. Therefore, after having made onion soup…bread sounds perfect.

    Thank you for your invite on CES…always a pleasure to meet other talented foodies ;o)

    Flavourful wishes,

  3. I’m wondering how I can convince my husband that using one of his bottles of beer for this would be a good plan! Looks delicious!

  4. This looks wonderful. I confess, I don’t like raisins. But beer and cheese, I’m there. I leave raisins out of everything!

  5. Thanks Judy for your lovely comment at my blog. What a grand way to begin my day. =) We have enjoyed a mix for beer bread, but I’ve never made it from scratch. Glad to have this recipe…along with many others of yours that I ‘pin’. We’ve had frost the last 2 mornings too. It’s that time of year. Have a great week and enjoy those colors.
