Cheese and herb beer bread

I have always been absolutely obsessed with beer bread. The flavour, the fact that is so incredibly easy and also that it’s always a crowd pleaser. I have in fact started making two loaves whenever I make beer bread because I know that there will never be enough.  I mean, who could say no to a thick slice of warm bread slathered in butter? No one! That’s who.

Of course you could make a simple beer bread which will be just scrumptious but when you add mature cheddar and a few tablespoons of fresh herbs, you take this bread to a new level. It’s the perfect side dish for a braai (or barbecue if you’re not from South Africa) and goes incredibly well with chili con carne. It’s also really amazing toasted, topped with a soft egg and some hot sauce. Basically, you should just make this bread and eat it every which way you probably can.
