“I have had beer bread before, but this version is very different from any that I have ever tried. It contains cheese,raisins boiled in beer, and nuts. Dont expect this to have the same texture as a yeast bread - beer bread is a batter bread and is not kneaded. Adapted from The Naperville Sun.”

  2. Combie flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  3. Stir in the beer and raisins, eggs, cheese, and nuts, mixing well by hand until everything is combined (it wil still have some lumps and should resemble thick pancake batter).
