    I don't usually make breads because I don;t have the time or patience for yeast and letting it rise etc. This bread couldn't be easier or more delicious. it blew my mind! I used Amstel lt. and added some cheddar and baked it about 5 extra minutes b/c I had an 8.5 x 4.5 pan. this is my new favorite recipe. I served it with chicken noodle soup that I had thrown in the crock pot this morning. perfect for the first cold, rainy, fall day

    This is almost exactly like a recipe I've had for more than 30 yrs., which used Bisquick ( a 20 oz. box) instead of self-rising flour. In addition to baking as a loaf, it can be made into muffins - just bake at 350 for 15 - 20 minutes. The beauty of it is that you can use only as much batter as you need for a few muffins, and keep the rest in the fridge for up to one week. It's a good recipe for quick weeknight meals.

    I truly liked this bread. I stirred in some cheddar but left out the chives and I thought it was delicious. My husband, though, thought the bread tasted too sweet.

    This is an awesome and easy recipe for beer bread. I used to use a mix that my friend would buy from a consultant who sold 'fancy' food...this one takes the prize!! I always make it when an appetizer is needed...my husband and entire family love it!!

    Very easy quick bread that will impress! It was slightly too sweet for my taste, but I think next time using regular salted butter as the topping rather than unsalted melted butter would balance out the sweetness well. Also, I plan to add good quality extra sharp cheese rather than generic sharp cheddar. I think with these to slight changes the recipe will be wonderful!

    I use this a lot, I am a die hard slow cooker cook. When I come home from work it is so easy to make this bread quickly while I am making the salad and finishing everything up. I change it up, depending on what is in the slow cooker...with chili I use a dark beer, sharp cheese and add finely chopped onion; with stew I use pepper jack cheese, light colored beer and finely chopped seeded jalepeno ; with pork roast I use Italian blend grated cheese, fresh chopped rosemary and a light colored beer; roast beef I use jack cheese, 2 Tblsp bleu cheese, 1 Tblsp horseradish and chopped cooked bacon with a dark beer. I could go on and on, but this recipe is so easy to make and change to suit your own taste!

    Turned out beautifully! And tasted amazing! A lightly crunchy/chewy crust, and a flavor packed rest of the loaf.
