FATHER’S DAY EDITION – Cheesy Cider Bread
This is so simple to make and it will make a delicious addition to a Fathers Day celebration.
The alcohol in the cider [or pale ale if you prefer] helps the bread rise and will cook out just leaving a delicious taste.
It is best eaten on the day it is made, but to really appreciate the texture and flavour eat it warm with lots of butter!
4 cups sr flour
1tsp mustard powder
150-200g grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 green apple grated
350ml alcoholic tart apple cider

Sift the flour, mustard powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.
Stir through the cheese and grated apple.
Make a well in the centre, pour in the beer and honey and stir until thoroughly combined.
