Whole Wheat Cheddar and Green Onion Beer Bread

Whole Wheat Cheddar and Green Onion Beer Bread

We call for a dark beer, which imparts a strong flavor, but any beer that you have on hand will work. Minimize foam from the beer by slowly adding it to the dry ingredients.

  • Yield: 10 servings (serving size: 1 slice)


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 2/3 cups dark beer (such as Guinness Stout)
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded 2% reduced-fat extrasharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • none Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup regular oats


1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, sugar, and baking soda in a large bowl; slowly stir in beer. Stir just until dry ingredients are moist. Stir in cheese and onions.

3. Spoon batter into an 8 x 4-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle oats over batter.

4. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.
