Beer and Onion Bread

On Sunday evening we were peckish, but had nothing much exciting in the pantry.  Some butternut soup in the freezer seemed the easiest option, but what to have with it?  A nice, flavourful, home-made bread perhaps?!  This is the easiest bread recipe you will ever come across.

500 g self-raising flour
340 ml beer
2 onions 
2 tablespoon sugar
dash of oil or butter
100 - 200 g cheese of choice

Preheat your oven to 180 ˚C and grease a 20 - 25 cm loaf tin.  Place oil or butter in a medium pan. Slice the onions and sauté until translucent.  Sprinkle the sugar over and allow to caramelise.  In the mean time, Sift the self-raising flour into a medium mixing bowl.  Add two thirds of the cheese to the flour.  Once the onions are ready, add them to the flour and mix thoroughly.  You may keep some of the onions aside to place on top of the loaf.  Crack open your beer and pour into the flour mixture.  Stir until just combined and pour into the loaf tin.  Sprinkle the remaining cheese (and onions) over the top of the loaf. Bake for approximately 45 minutes. Et voila!
