Apple, Cheddar, and Rosemary Beer Bread


Apple chunks, sharp Cheddar cheese, and fresh rosemary are a great savory and sweet combination in this beer bread. It's especially good with soup or chili. I used an apple ale, but you may use your favorite beer.

  2. Sift flour, sugar, and rosemary together into a large mixing bowl. Pour in beer; stir to combine. Stir in apple and Cheddar cheese until well combined; batter will be stiff and sticky. Scoop batter into the prepared loaf pan.
