Welcome to pure unadulterated cheesiness. Pure unadulterated deliciousness. Pure unadulterated awesomeness. I’m realizing I actually have no idea what “adulterated” means. I hope it doesn’t mean gross, because now I’m committed.

I used to despise super-spicy foods. I would say that food shouldn’t hurt. I was a sissy.

Now, I say: Bring it on! I mean, within reason, and with a glass of milk nearby to tame the fire if it gets too out of control. I may not be totally wimpy about heat any longer, but a reformed sissy’s still gotta be prepared.

Is it a quick bread? Is it a yeast bread? Is it cornbread? I don’t even know. I just know it seems, to me, a stunning combination of all three. With cheese.

What I can say without a doubt is that it is pretty much pure awesome.

It’s based upon a recent discovery, Sara Moulton’s beer bread. Which really, apparently, is her fan Debbie Bickford’s beer bread. What I say to both of them is this: Thanks, Sara and Debbie, for the recipe, which is really not so much a recipe as a it is a revelation here in our kitchen.
