Secret Recipe Club: Cheddar Beer Bread


Yay, it’s one of my favorite days of the month, my Secret Recipe Club reveal day for March!

I’m honored to be a part of this diverse international group of food bloggers.  In case you forgot, everyone in the Secret Recipe Club gets “assigned” a blog from which we are supposed to pick a dish to cook.  But, it’s all done in secrecy.  It isn’t until the ultimate reveal day (today) that everyone showcases the dishes and discovers who’s been their secret foodie link.  This club has provided me valuable exposure to blogs I might not otherwise encounter.

My March assignment is Flying on Jess Fuel .  I always visit the About Me section of any blog to learn about the person behind the recipes.  Jess is the wife of a Navy pilot, Nick, who have been traveling around the US as her husband gets relocated for work.  Flying on Jess Fuel chronicles their love of delicious food, good red wines, and cold, frosty home brews.  Jess’ blog features a wide assortment of recipes I’ve ear marked, from Crab Rangoon to Toasted Squash Seeds to Cilantro Garlic Ribs!

Having recently made a Beer Bread from a mix, I was excited to try Jess’ homemade Cheddar Beer Bread recipe.

I love this quick bread recipe, no hours of rising required.  And, I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand, including some beer.

While Jess recommends using light beer (I used Corona light) I would recommend using a lighter dark beer to give it more robust flavor.

And, knowing how much my family adores cheese, I took the liberty of adding at least an extra 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.


This bread was so tasty and fresh, we polished off the enter loaf at dinner time!

Definitely check out Flying on Jess Fuel for more tasty, easy to make recipes.




  1. So glad you liked this recipe!! It’s one of my favorite quick go-to recipes! I’ve used all sorts of beers and mixing up the flavors is definitely fun! Great pick!

  2. What a great pick! I have seen a lot of beer breads lately. I haven’t tried it but am very intrigued.

  3. This sounds so so so delicious and incredibly simple to make!

  4. I’ve always wanted to make this type of bread, so I am saving this to my Pinterest board right away!

    Don’t you love a Monday when Reveal Day is on the menu? 😉

  5. Looks delicious–the cheese, yummy. Great SRC pick.

  6. Beer bread is the best!! So easy and tasty, LOVE it. Yours looks de-lishhh

  7. Sounds absolutely delicious! Great pick this month 🙂

  8. My family loves beer bread. This recipe looks extremely easy and tasty. I’ll be making this one soon.
    Thanks for sharing and happy #src reveal day!

  9. I also love making breads that have short rise times too! Great SRC pick!

  10. yum. How funny. I had some leftover beer from my SRC recipe and thought “i’ll make beer bread”. I think it was too dark of an ale because I didn’t like the bread at all and in the past I have liked beer bread. Yours looks yummy. I’ll have to save your recipe and maybe try it sometime.

  11. Bookmarked! I adore cheese! GREAT SRC pick, Karen
