Beer Batter Cheese Bread
DirectionsAdjust oven rack to the middle of oven; preheat to 375. Grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan.
Stir the flour, cheese, sugar, baking powder, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl.
Stir in the beer and melted butter until just combined (do not overmix).
Scrape the batter into the prepared pan; smooth the top, and brush lightly with extra melted butter (about 1 tablespoon).
Bake until golden brown and a pick inserted into the center comes out clean with just a few crumbs attached, 40-45 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking.
Let the loaf cool in the pan for 10 minutes then turn out on a wire rack; cool for 1 hour before serving.
