Cheddar Chive Beer Bread Recipe

This is one of my favorite 'quick' recipes and is so yummy with all the soups and hearty foods this time of year.  I use fresh chives when in season and use chives I've frozen when I bake this bread all winter long.
Make sure you make a sandwich or two with this beer bread.
 I love this bread with chicken, tuna, or 
ham salad too.
Or just spread the warm bread with even more butter..... your mouth watering yet?
3 Cups self-rising flour
1/2 Cup sugar
2 T chopped fresh or frozen chives
3/4 Cup sheddred cheddar cheese
1 12 ounce beer
1/4 Cup butter, melted
Stir together first 5 ingredients; pour into lightly greased 9 X 5" loaf pan. 
 Bake @350 F for 45 minutes.  Pour melted butter over top.
  Bake 10 more minutes.


  1. oh my chickie ~ that looks mouth watering fantastic.

  2. Fantastic! I made a loaf of this a few days ago & it's yummo. I'm making another loaf today to send to my beer loving Dad in the mail :)

    Here's how mine turned out:

  3. My mom use to make something very similar to this. I love how you melt butter on top.
