How to make it

This Garlic and Blue Cheese Beer Bread was one of the most popular recipes we’ve shared, and so Hoast The Toast kindly agreed to let us feature the recipe here on our site. For the full recipe with detailed instructions, please visit Hoast The Toast. Here’s a brief synopsis:

Preheat the oven to 170° C / 190° C (with/without fan). In a pan, heat the oil over medium-low heat and add the onions, until brown. Season with black pepper and add the garlic. Cook for a minute, then remove from heat. Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together until well-combined. In the centre of the mixture create a well to add the onion, garlic, blue cheese (we recommend Cropwell Bishop Stilton, or Blue Monday), and lager. Stir until the mixture becomes moist. Using a 9 x 5 inch tin, spray with oil and pour in the batter. Drizzle half the butter over the batter and bake for half an hour, then pour over the remaining butter. Bake until the Blue Cheese Beer Bread turns golden brown.
