Cheese, Beer, Garlic and Chive Bread
I looked at a few recipes online to get some ideas, then I went to town. This bread is so tasty out of the oven, we could have finished it, but we didn't. You don't want a heavy beef for this recipes, a light lager or IPA would be great.
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tsp shipped chives
1 cup of grated Gouda
1 1⁄4 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
12 ounces beer (1 bottle)
Mix all ingredients together, mixing in beer last. Batter should be the consistency of Bisquick.
Spoon into a well greased bread pan and bake at 350 degrees (f) for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
Brush the bread with butter when it comes out of the oven (optional but tasty)
Let bread rest in it's pan for about 10 minutes then let it cool on a rack for another 10 minutes or so.
