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.

This is hands down the most delicious bread I’ve made. It’s a well balanced flavor that combines the saltiness of cheddar, the sweetness of apple and the earthiness of rosemary. Not to mention the beer rounds all of the flavors out. Served this to my boyfriend and he destroyed his slice by the time I cut mine. Read More

I have been making beer bread for many years. This is the first time I made a variation on the basic recipe. It was delicious! Family loved the flavor and was great served with potato soup. Only change I would make is to maybe add more fresh rosemary. Flavors may increase with time, but we ate it while it was still warm.. Read More

I wasn't a fan. The bread was super dense and while savory, did not have a strong apple or cheddar flavor. I found it to be quite bland. It didn't taste bad - it's just not a flavor profile I would go back to for seconds. Read More

This is just absolutely delicious! I did not have self rising flour, so I made my own using all purpose flour, baking powder, and salt!? Read More
