I can’t believe that it is October already.  It is time to figure out Halloween costumes.  When we were in Disney last week we actually went to a Halloween event.  I dressed up for the first time since college.  Dressing up has just never been my thing.  But my sister in-law talked me into it, and my son could not have been happier.  He has always wanted me to dress up, so when I finally did it he was so excited.  Now he says I have to wear my costume when I take him trick or treating.  We will see about that…first to find him a real costume, because his one last week was just a super easy, we were traveling costume.

Easy Cheddar Beer Bread {Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts}

My family loves fresh bread.  Well, I should say we just love bread.  But if the house smells heavenly, and we get to slice into a warm loaf of bread, we are all super happy.  It is hard to find a dinner that bread doesn’t go with in this house.  One kind of bread I have never made before was beer bread.  I have seen mixes for it, but wanted to make it without any special ingredients.  So I used Bisquick.  Seriously, just 4 ingredients. This has to be the easiest bread recipe I have ever made.  It was super light, fluffy, and beer and cheese always go together.  Who knew cheddar beer bread was so easy?

The hardest part of about making this bread is waiting for it to bake.  It takes almost an hour to bake, but less 5 minutes of hands on work.  So you can pretty much forget about it, except for the fact that immediately your whole house smells amazing.  My husband came home from work and before he was even in the door said it smelled good.  I didn’t expect my husband to be a big fan of beer bread, because he doesn’t drink beer.  But he loved it.  I only sliced a few pieces for us, and he just kept picking at the loaf of bread.  Beer and cheese are always good together, and this bread is definitely no exception. So take the 5 minutes and make this Cheddar Beer Bread for with your dinner tonight!

This easy cheddar beer bread recipe only takes 5 minutes of prep time before it's ready for the oven. It's loaded with beer, cheese, and garlic powder, and it's soft and moist.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 (12 oz) beer
  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, salt, and cheddar cheese.
  3. Add the beer to the bowl and fold in until combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Spread the melted butter over the top.
  5. Place the loaf pan on a baking sheet and bake for 45-55 minutes, until a tester comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
  6. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan and placing on a wire rack.


  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight bag (ideally double-bagged) in the fridge for 5 days or in the freezer for 4 months.
  • Reheat in a toaster.
  • The bread will taste best in the first 2 days. After that it will lose some of the beer flavor.
