Loaded Beer Bread

What do you do when you have beer left over from tailgating?  You make beer bread!  If you have never had beer bread then you are missing out.   It is quick, easy, and yummy when made correctly.  I have been wanting to try this beer bread on steroids for a while but haven't had the chance.  Since I decided to make pasta I figured there is no better time.

Loaded Beer Bread
Adapted from JavaCupcake

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon basil
2 cups cheddar cheese
12 oz beer
3 tablespoons butter, melted

1.  Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.  Butter a 9 x 5 loaf pan.
2.  In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and herbs.
3.  Add the cheese and mix until incorporated.
4.  Pour 12 oz of beer into the flour mixture and with a wooden spoon mix it until all the ingredients are wet and incorporated.  Do not over mix!
5.  Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
6.  Bake for about 50 minutes, rotating pan after 30 minutes.
7.  About 2 minutes before it is done pour the melted butter over the top of the bread and put back in the oven for the last 2 minutes.
8.  Cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes before removing the bread to cool completely. 

This bread came out pretty dee-lish.  A little on the salty side but with pasta it was good.  I will be sticking this recipe in my recipe book.

It's been super cold here in the morning.  I swear it went from 100 degrees to 60 degrees over night.  Not cool!  All this cold weather makes it super hard to get out of bed in the morning.  I mean, who wants to leave a toasty bed for a freezing cold bathroom?  Oh and to make the decision harder is a snuggling pup.  I mean who wants to leave a heat warmer like a pup for a cold bathroom?  No me. 

Keep on cooking my friends and stay warm.  Winter is coming.
