How to Make Cheesy Beer Bread
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Butter a 9×5-inch loaf pan and dust with the cornmeal.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and beer in a large mixing bowl.
Using a spatula, gently fold the shredded cheddar cheese into the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and let rest for 20 minutes.
Place bread on the center rack in preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes.
Remove bread from the oven and brush the butter on top.
Return bread to the oven and bake until golden brown from the melted butter, about 5 minutes.
Allow bread to cool to room temperature and slice.
