Easy Beer Bread with Cheese

This Cast Iron Beer Cheese Bread was an instant hit at our house. It tastes like a giant Red Lobster biscuit. Oh yeah! The bread has a nice crispy crust from cooking in the cast iron skillet and it is nice and soft inside. The best part about this recipe is the yummy garlic and cheese in the bread. SO yummy! I ate WAY too much of this bread.

How to Make Beer Bread without Yeast

This bread is SUPER easy to make. Start with placing some oil in the bottom of a cast iron skillet. Place the skillet in a cold oven and preheat the oven. While the oven is preheating, mix together flour, garlic powder, parsley, sugar, salt, baking powder, cheddar cheese, and beer. Once the oven has preheated, take the skillet out and spread the batter into the skillet and bake.

I used a bottle of Michelob Ultra for the bread. I suggest a light beer so that the flavor doesn’t overwhelm the bread. Budweiser, Bud Light, Miller Lite would all work great.

  1. Just made it. I wondered about 2 T. of dried parsley but that was fine. So easy to mix up. So yummy with butter. I stole some bites before dinner. I’m thinking hot honey will be perfect with it and my cheese soup. Thanks for an easy recipe.

  2. Making this for easter dinner, thinking about the add in options, jalapeño’s and bacon? So many possibilities.

  3. Could I also use this recipe in an electric frying pan on medium to high?
    Obviouly then certainly no crunchy top, right?

    1. What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  4. Has anyone tried this with gluten free flour? Our family is gluten free, my father who is also gluten free, drinks a beer made with sorghum so I would love to try this for my family. My success level substituting 1-1 gluten free flour has fantastic at times but not so good at others. I sure would appreciate any suggestions you or your readers might have. Looks absolutely delicious 😋

  5. The only cast iron skillet I have is one that is cast iron wedge pan that I use for cornbread. Do you think that this pan will work??

  6. I have made this once and it was delicious! I’m making it again today to take for our weekly after church fellowship meal. Have you ever heard of a Danish whisk? I used mine to mix this, and it works and cleans up so much better than a standard whisk. Got it on Amazon.

    1. You can try it. The only difference in all-purpose flour and bread flour is the protein content, so it should be just fine. BUT I haven’t made this particular recipe with bread flour, so I can’t say with 100% certainty.

    1. 1 cup of self-rising flour has 1-1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt. That is pretty close to the measurements in the recipe. You would just add 1/4 tsp of baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt.

      It will probbably work fine with just the self-rising flour. I just can’t say with 100% certantity without further recipe testing.

    1. I love the crunchy crust from the cast iron skillet! I also love that it cooks quicker than in a loaf pan.

      1. Man this is good. I try not to make it too often as it is such a carb monster. We have a 9″ square cast iron pan that is the perfect size for nine squares. Each time I make it with a little more cheese, in the batter and on top. My latest trick is to tuck small cheese slices about a half inch down the inside edge of the pan, between the batter and the pan. Gets crusty and delicious. Also try poking a couple dozen 1/2″ cubes of pepper jack at random spots before baking.
