3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

3 tbsp Sue Bee® Baking Honey

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp garlic powder

2 tbsp (1/2 cup) butter, melted

12-oz bottle of honey wheat beer


Preheat oven to 350° F.

Grease a 9” loaf pan and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, cheese, baking powder, garlic powder and salt. Mix together.

In a smaller bowl, whisk together the honey and beer until the honey is dissolved.

(NOTE: Let the honey/beer mixture settle before moving on.)

Make a well in the center of the flour mix and pour in the honey-beer mixture.

Mix ingredients just until the mixture starts to come together. (NOTE: Over-mixing will cause a dense bread.)

Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50–55 minutes or until top is nicely browned and a toothpick to the center comes out clean.

Brush the top of the bread with a mixture of melted butter and honey and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

Remove from the pan and continue to cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes before slicing.
