garlic mozzarella beer bread

Winter break is quickly coming to an end.  But, the fact that the weather is reminiscent of spring break helps the situation significantly.  Yesterday hubs, pup and I went on a nice long walk without coats or jackets or sweaters.  Birds were chirping, kids were running, and the sun was shining.  Somehow, this fact makes everything better.

This week, though, the whole spring preview thing will be coming to an end as classes begin in the morning.  Tomorrow would be a good evening for some heavy, wintery carbs...like garlic mozzarella beer bread.

It is a really quick and easy bread with warm, cheesy, garlicky results.  It might even convince you that spring can wait...at least until the bread is gone.

Garlic Mozzarella Beer Bread
Recipe adapted from culicurious
Makes 1 loaf

  • 2 c sifted white whole wheat flour
  • 1 c sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 c grated mozzarella provolone cheese (or regular mozzarella)
  • 12 oz beer
  • 1/2 c butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375 and grease a loaf pan.  In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, salt, sugar, and garlic powder.  Add the cheese and beer, mixing everything just until combined.  Pour dough into the greased loaf pan and pour the melted butter over it.  Bake for about an hour.  Let the bread cool before cutting it.
