Cheesy Zucchini Beer Bread

Welcome back to QCK!

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted new content. I decided to take a break from social media a couple weeks back for a few reasons. School started, I needed to focus and make sure I was in a good spot with my classes. I had a few other projects outside of this blog going on that needed some serious attention. But mostly, I was just mentally burnt out. After watching the events that took place in Kenosha, I started shutting down. I lost a lot of drive and motivation. I needed some time to process and regroup. Thank you for sticking around while I did so. I appreciate the continued support.

With all that being said, I felt it was only appropriate to make my return with a Sunday Bake because, as you all know, it’s my favorite. This weeks Sunday Bake is savory. Zucchini Cheddar Beer Bread. It’s a super simple, one bowl recipe. Minimal ingredients. I love this recipe right now because it’s great with fall soups or alone with a shmear of honey butter.

Notes

  • Sugar can be substituted for honey.
  • The stronger the beer, the stronger the beer flavor. I like a fairly light beer for this recipe.
  • You can also add small diced jalapeño.
  • Fresh garlic can be subbed for garlic powder.
