Okay, I like my carbs with carbs with beer, cheese, and jalapenos.
How can you say no to that?
Well, if you are into this ingredient list than you have to try making a loaf of this Easy Beer Cheese Bread. And when I say easy, I mean easy. There’s no active yeast, no rising, and no kneading. All that stands in you way of enjoying a slice of this bread is a mixture of a few ingredients and waiting for it to bake until golden brown and cheesy.

What’s in this Easy Beer Cheese Bread?
If you’ve been a reader of the Curious Plate for a long time, you know that baking is not my jam. Active yeast frightens me which is why I adore this Easy Beer Cheese Bread because start to finish it only takes an hour to make.
For this recipe you will need:
- All-purpose Flour
- Baking soda
- Granulated sugar
- Garlic powder
- Cheddar Cheese
- Cream Cheese
- Beer. I’m a big fan of IPA beers when it comes to cooking. Typically you want to use a beer that you actually enjoy drinking because most of the time you don’t use a whole can and have some leftovers. And let’s be real, we aren’t here to waste beer!
- Cheese. If you aren’t a fan of cheddar you can definitely swap out for gouda or a white cheddar. OOOOh….smoked mozzarella would be amazing too! Either way, try to keep the cheese in this bread because it makes it an 11/10 situation.
- Jalapenos. I adore spice. However, if you aren’t into jalapenos that’s totally fine. You can either omit the jalapeno all together and use a 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper for less heat.
