Considering tomorrow is the first day of March, I thought it would be good to dive into some St. Patrick's Day baking. Not that you should wait for March 17th to make these beer bread muffins - oh, no - make them now!
If you're new to bread making, then I'd like to suggest beer bread as your first effort. It's an easy fix with big payoff. I developed this cheesy version to dip into my favorite Irish stew. I baked the dough in a muffin tin because my favorite part of beer bread is the golden slightly chewy exterior, and you get more of that in muffin form.
