Apple Cider Cheddar Bread

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time45 mins
Total Time55 mins
Servings: 1 (8x4-inch or 9x5-inch) loaf


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 4 ounces finely grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup hard apple cider
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 honey crisp or gala apple or pink lady apple sliced


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 8x4-inch or 9x5-inch loaf pan and line with a sheet of parchment. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the cheese and toss together until it’s evenly distributed throughout the flour mixture.
  • Using your hands or spatula, create a well in the center. Pour the hard apple cider and melted butter into the center. Stir until completely combined. Pour into the prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top with a spatula. Top the loaf with apple slices, overlapping them however you like.
  • Transfer to the oven to bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes, before removing and allowing it to cool to room temperature. Serve it with some softened butter! Also, I tried this with apple butter and it was also SO GOOD.


The 9x5-inch loaf will be a bit stouter than the one pictured!
