Easy cheesy corn beer bread

So there goes winter. Gone are the icy days spent snuggled up in a blanket with a mug of hot chocolate. *sob* BUT Hellloooo spring! As much as I love winter, nothing beats spring in my eyes. The air is crisp and fresh, the trees are sporting bright green buds and beautiful blossoms and there’s a floral fragrance in the air. And even though I’m dreading the heat of summer (it’s been said that we can expect a scorcher), I am absolutely relishing in the beauty of spring.

Easy cheesy corn beer breadAs we will no-doubtedly be spending more and more time outdoors braaing (barbecueing) and enjoying the lovely weather, I’ve been sprucing up my side dish repertoire because soon it will be the season where you are asked to bring something along. And even though I usually fall back on one of the many salad recipes I love, I like to bring a little something different every now and then and this easy, cheesy corn beer bread is a winner. You all know the intense love I have for my bacon corn bread recipe  and this one is very similar but it has the added benefit of being suitable for Vegetarians as well. Now everyone can join in on the fun!

Easy cheesy corn beer breadAs mentioned, I usually serve this as a side dish at a barbecue but it’s equally delicious as a side dish to comforting chili or other stews to mop up the juice but honestly you guys, thick slices of this beer bread slathered in butter is the best way to eat this bread and is pretty much my idea of Heaven.

    Is any beer fine to use?

    • Alida Ryder

      I would stick to lagers or pale ales. Average commercial beers are usually best in these kinds of recipes. As I’m in South Africa I used a Castle Lager.

    This bread looks so tasty. I always make beer bread plain but I love the addition of cheese and corn. I will definitely try this recipe!

    • Alida Ryder
