Apple Cheese and Beer Bread (SRC)

It is that time of the month again!!!

Just a reminder what SRC means => The Secret Recipe Club supports a group of food bloggers, by encouraging each other to read & re-create recipes from each others blogs. The method involves a monthly assignment, whereby each blogger is assigned another’s blog – where that months recipe needs to be found… and a specified reveal day per group. (And this is group A’s reveal day!)


For the month of May – I got allocated Edisia’s Notebookwritten by Lesa, a stay at home mom to 2 beautiful girls and a very happy wife, who (like myself) loves to try out new recipes!! (Kindred souls, I tell you!) The name of her blog, Edisia, relates back to the Roman Goddess of the Feast who presides over banquets (and I seriously couldn’t think of a better alter ego than that!), Her food is family friendly and easy to make… and of course… easy to enjoy 🙂

I really drooled over her recipe index… and finally settled on making her apple cheese beer bread. I did make a few adjustments along the way – I omitted the apple sauce and increased the amount of beer … plus I didn’t cook the apple with onions – and rather added it “raw’ to the bread, which didn’t affect the bread negatively.

This is definitely a recipe that I would make again….  I served it with some homemade pea & broccoli soup… and the sweetness of the bread was perfect for dunking 🙂 plus, this bread made some awesome toasted sandwiches the next day (with ham & cheese!!)
