Cheddar and Chive Guinness Bread
There's no better way to warm your house in November than by simply turning on the oven, and now we're giving you a reason to: homemade beer bread. Make this Irish-inspired treat with Guinness and Dubliner Cheddar, and it's as if Saint Patrick's Day came early.
My mom used to make this bread a lot. I remember the yeasty aroma filling the house and the way the butter-soaked crust attached to the fluffy middle with a coveted middle section of chewy, slightly bitter dough. When I brought it up last week it seemed a distant memory to her, but she was excited to help me test this recipe and even sent me the above photo of her batch.
Mom claims beer bread was a trend in the Eighties but I'm not so sure why it would no longer be in vogue. If you missed the trend thirty years ago, now is the time to make your first beer bread.
