Scallion - Queso Beer Bread (vegan,whole grain)

I made a pot of Chili today and The Boyfriend, of course, wanted cornbread, but I don't have any cornmeal and really, we have so much food in the house, so going to the store seemed ridiculous.  I remembered we had a couple bottles of beer that someone brought over that we will never drink, so I decided to create a beer bread recipe.

I used some homemade Queso, along with scallions and it came out fantastic!

Scallion - Queso Beer Bread

  • 3 cups white whole wheat flour (I use King Arthur's)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegan queso 
  • 12 oz room temperature beer
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped scallions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375
  2. Sift dry ingredients together (including sugar and salt)
  3. Make a well and whisk in the wet ingredients. 
  4. Scrape into 8 inch loaf pan, sprayed with cooking spray
  5. Bake for 1 hour, rotating pan halfway through
  6. Let bread cool for at least 30 minutes. 
  7. Enjoy!


  1. this looks great -- how dark of a beer did you use? my husband would love this.

    1. It was a Sam Adams Irish Red, I believe.

    2. Excellent -- as a displaced New Englander, I would love to use SA in this recipe. Thanks!

  2. The bread turned out great. Thanks for the recipe. Hubby loved it. Mine cooked in 30 min! Crazy

    1. Oh wow... do you have a convection oven? I almost felt like I could have baked the bread a little longer than the hour.. I'm really curious about the differences in baking times. I'm glad you knew enough to pull it out when it was done and that you guys liked it.
