Cheddar & Chive Guinness Bread Recipe

makes one 8 1/2-inch loaf

2 3/4 cups sifted all purpose flour

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

 1 (12-ounce) bottle Irish stout beer

1 cup grated Irish cheddar cheese (about 4 ounces)

1/4 cup chopped chives

1/4 cup Irish butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375° F. Line 8 1/2- x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, or coat with butter.
In a mixing bowl, thoroughly whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pour in the beer and mix until the dry ingredients are evenly moistened. Fold in 3/4 cup of the cheese and the chives.
Transfer the batter to prepared pan. Pour the melted butter evenly over top of the dough. Bake about 30 minutes then scatter the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese over the top. Return the loaf to the oven and bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until a tester inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes.
Turn out and serve warm, sliced.
