IPA, Mustard, and Cheese Twist Bread

14 Aug

Ohhhh so good. All my friends have been asking for this recipe and I’ve been quite lame and long to respond. But I am here nonetheless to post!

The original idea of the recipe comes from smittenkitchen.com, I’ve adapted the recipe a bit to make for a curious twist in the bread. Easier and quicker preparation.

You’ll Need:

  • 2 teaspoons yeast
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup of IPA or dark beer and another 1/3 cup
  • 2 T sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup rye flour
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature


  • 1 cup sharp cheddar, shredded
  • 1 T Worcester sauce
  • 2 T mustard
  • 1 t paprika
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. In a pot over medium-high heat, warm beer and butter. When melted remove from heat. Add yeast and let settle.
  2. Mix flour, rye flour, and sugar in a mixer with paddle attachment. Slowly pour in beer mixture.
  3. Switch to dough hook attachment. Kneed the dough a bit.
  4. Finally, add eggs. Continue to kneed until throughly combined.
  5. Cover dough and let sit for an hour or until doubled in size.
  6. Mix the filling ingredients together in a bowl.
  7. When ready, flour a large board or table and roll out dough

  9. This is the moment of truth. With a very sharp knife, stroke a line right through the middle of the log. (Sorry I didn’t take pictures of that step!!!) It will look kind of weird. I know. Bare with me. Roll it up anyways like a snail.
