Cheese and onion beer bread!

300g plain flour

25g sugar

3 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

115g mature cheddar cheese, grated plus a little more for the top

1 small onion, finely diced, fried in a heaped tablespoon of butter until soft and golden

1 egg, beaten

95ml lager

30ml milk

3 tbsp oil

1 heaped teaspoon whole grain mustard

Preheat a fan oven to 180c, regular oven 200c . Take a large baking tray and lightly sprinkle with flour.

Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cheese, and onion ( save a heaped tablespoon for the top) in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl or jug mix the egg, milk, oil and mustard

Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix with a fork until a soft but not sticky dough is formed.

Scrape the mixture onto the prepared tray, flour your hands and roughly shape the dough into a flattened ball 3cm deep. Sprinkle with the remainder of the fried onion and a little more grated cheddar. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until cooked, the crust should be golden brown And a thin knife should come out clean when pushed into the centre.

Serve sliced, spread with butter!
