Steam Whistle Bread

Recipe by Hanna Trafford. 

Combine the dry ingredients first, then add the cheese and green onions and mix gently

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, mustard and salt. Stir in the cheese, green onions and basil, mix until cheese pieces are coated.

Gently pour in Steam Whistle Pilsner and mix until all cheese pieces are evenly coated

Pour in Steam Whistle Pilsner and stir just until blended and no dry spots remain

Mix gently until all cheese pieces are covered with batter

This is what the batter looks like before you put it into the baking pan

Spoon batter into greased loaf pan and arrange onion slices on top

Spoon batter into greased 9 x 5 inch bread pan and smooth the top. Arrange onion slices on tol of the batter. If you wish, you can sprinkle sesame seeds over the top

Bake in preheated 350F oven for 50 – 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Let stand on a wire rack for about 5 minutes before slicing
