  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees and butter a glass loaf pan.
  2. Dice the cheese into small pieces. Place diced cheese and Plant Butter into a medium saucepan and melt on medium-low heat for about 15 minutes until melted.
  3. Spoon flour into a measuring cup, level off with the back of a knife, and sift flour into a large bowl. Add sugar, salt, baking powder, black pepper, cayenne, minced garlic, and nutritional yeast. Mix together and follow by gently mixing room temperature beer. Finally, fold in the melted cheese/Plant Butter mixture just until fully incorporated.
  4. Pour batter into buttered loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Garnish with flaky salt and cracked black pepper if desired. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes.
NOTES I definitely recommend sifting the flour which helps to make the bread fluffier. Try adding in different ingredients like diced red onion, jalapeno, fresh corn kernels, or some fresh herbs like thyme or oregano.
