Hey guys and Happy Friday! We made it to the end of the week in once piece and school seems to be going smoothly for my little ones. Today is my youngest boy’s birthday! He is officially a 7-year-old, technically not until 10:15 tonight but who’s counting. I’m just so proud of who this little boy is becoming. He had one request for his Birthday and that was a meat and cheese tray, he is his father’s child for sure. We are having a dual party for him and my daughter tomorrow since her Birthday is next Friday so this post is going to be short and sweet today since this mama has some baking to do!
So I’m a big cake person. I love making my kids special cakes/cupcakes for special occasions! Now obviously I’m not a professional, but this is just a fun side project I like to do. Once I get the ones made for this weekend I’ll share the pics with you next week. These pics are just from last year for Avery and Nova. Sadly I didn’t get pictures of the other 2 boys cakes but they were football and batman, so you can imagine!
Now moving on to today’s recipe! I revamped my cheddar bread recipe and added beer. I love beer bread so I mixed the two together and it was absolutely amazing. One of those breads that you just can’t stop eating. I had the bread for dinner last night, yup, that was my meal! We bought a case of beer just to make my beer brats a while back and I had this whole case left to use up, since I’m not a drinker. So lot’s of beer baking recipes have come about in my kitchen lately. Some awesome and some…eh not so much. We all have those.
So I hope you all have an amazing weekend and I’ll be back bright and early Monday morning, hopefully with something creative! In the meantime, make this bread. Your taste buds and belly will absolutely love you!
