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.

  • Make it a meal! Serve this rich monkey bread with some soup and salad for a delicious dinner.
