The CtB family spent last week in Minneapolis. Thank to those who followed along on Instagram. If you missed the fun, you should definitely swing by and give me a follow!
When we got home late Friday night, all I wanted to do was sleep for 3 days. Having fun is such hard work! But, I did find the energy to make these muffins by Saturday morning. Inspired by a recipe in Banana Cream Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke, these muffins are tasty and super easy to make.
You can use any beer or cheese that appeals to you. I used a regular light lager because I’m not a big beer fan (translation: I think it’s kind of gross.) For my cheese, I had a hunk of cheddar with carmelized onions from Trader Joe’s. It added a nice depth of flavor and really complemented the beer well. I did a fine shred, but I think when I make these again I’ll do a regular shred to get more pockets of cheesy goodness.
We ate these with turkey chili, but they would be delicious with a wide variety of main dishes. Give them a try and let me know what you think!

Cheesy Beer Muffins
Inspired by a recipe in Banana Cream Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke
- 2 cups baking mix
- 6 oz beer of your choice
- 1/4 cup water
- 3/4 cup shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a muffin tin.
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Don’t overmix – a few lumps are okay.
Fill muffin cups approximately 3/4 full.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
