  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 x 340ml bottle beer of your choice
  • 1.5 cups grated mature cheddar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh herbs chopped (I used parsley, thyme and basil)


  • Pre-heat the oven to 170°c and grease a loaf tin well.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add 1 cup of the cheese and herbs and mix well then pour in the beer and mix until just combined.
  • Transfer the dough to the prepared loaf tin then scatter over the remaining cheese and place in the oven.
  • Bake for 45-60 minutes until the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20-30 minutes before serving.
