Cheesy Beer Monkey Bread combines the buttery rich flavor of beer bread with gooey, tangy cheese into Monkey Bread form. Easy to make and fun to eat!

This Cheesy Beer Monkey Bread is my go-to recipe when I need something quick to take to a Super Bowl party or when I’m hosting a casual gathering at home. The buttery bread bakes around tangy cheese in a bundt pan, creating a golden, tender pull-apart bread that always disappears fast! It’s a cheesy twist to my Three Ingredient Beer Bread and you’ll love how easy it comes together.

What Does Beer Bread Taste Like?

Both bread and beer are made with similar ingredients, which is why they blend so well together. The yeast in the beer combined with the sugar helps the bread to rise, making it light and fluffy. And the alcohol from the beer cooks off during the baking process, leaving nothing but the rich, buttery flavor.

Ingredients Needed for Cheesy Beer Monkey Bread

You’ll be amazed how easy this beer bread is so easy to throw together! A lot of cooks get nervous about making their own bread, but this monkey bread uses only a few ingredients and bakes up in a snap! Here’s all you need:

  • Self rising flour (Find it next to the all purpose flour in your grocery store)
  • Granulated sugar
  • Your favorite beer, about 12 ounces. (You can use a light beer for this recipe too!)
  • Cheese, cut into cubes. (Any kind of cheese will work, but I especially love mozzarella, pepper jack, Monterey jack, or a good sharp white cheddar cheese in this monkey bread)
  • One melted stick of butter

How to Make Cheesy Beer Monkey Bread

  1. First, grab a bundt pan and grease it with cooking spray.
  2. Next, mix together self-rising flour, sugar and beer until it’s just combined.
  3. Then, wrap a little bit of the sticky flour mixture around each cube of cheese, dip into the butter and drop it into the bundt pan.
  4. Pour the rest of the dough into the pan and bake for 40 minutes.
  5. It’s best served warm, but is really delicious cold too!
  6. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to three days.

    Can you make it in advance, but not bake it until you are ready to eat it? If yes, how far in advance?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Gabriella, I have never made the beer bread dough ahead of time, so I can’t speak from experience. I would suspect that it would be fine to make it the day before and then just bring it to room temperature for five to ten minutes before baking.

  2. Peggy says

    My cousin made his and it is absolutely to die for…..I had to make some myself. Mine flopped….I know it was 100% my fault but I can’t figure out what I did wrong. I did add extra cheese and bacon ( I’m sure I’m not the only that did it) and other than that I did it by the recipe….the middle was completely raw Is this supposed to make 2 loaves? The flavor on the good part is sooooooooooo good. I’m gonna try it again….I might also add that I can’t boil water either

    • Lisa Longley says

      Oh no Peggy!!! I’m so sorry this didn’t work for you! Okay, this is what I’m thinking: It’s either your pan or your oven. Ovens have this sneaky way of becoming uncalibrated and they are saying they are baking at one temperature when it’s really not heigh enough. Oooor, your pan. Sometimes old bundt pans are really really thick, and they require a longer cooking time. I would say that the next time you give it a go, you pull it out when it is supposed to be done, and take a knife and gently pull back pieces to see where you are at with the cooking.

  3. Cecilia says

    Hi new to this site, plan on taking this to a potluck. Its for 6pm. and they live 45 min from my house. Can i make it at home and serve there. Or should i bake it there. and then serve it. Would love to make, sounds delish.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m certain I’m too late for this question, but if someone else has it too, I would bake it there.

  4. Jana says

    • Lisa Longley says
