As you can guess, two of the ingredients are cheese and beer. Use any beer and cheese you want here. I “stole” a good Mexican beer from my husband’s end of the semester celebratory 6 pack. Thanks, Honey! And I opted for cheddar because I think it pairs nicely with the beer. And, it’s what I had on hand… Yes, I say that on the blog a lot.

The other two ingredients are self-rising flour and sugar. If you don’t have self-rising flour then you need to up your ingredient count by two and add in some baking powder and salt. And you’ll need an extra 10-20 seconds to measure and mix them in. I think you can handle it. And yes, you need a little sugar to help the rise and more importantly for color.

After about 45 minutes in the oven this is the result. Cheese inside and cheese on top, sigh!

I served this with a roast beef and then enjoyed it the next day as a roast beef sandwich. I think it would be great with your next barbecue (hint Father’s Day is coming up) or a hearty soup or stew in winter time.

Would I serve it to kids? Stop laughing Europeans, Americans get hung up on this concept. The alcohol content actually ends up being quite minimal once it is baked (about 1% per slice if my calculations are correct). They aren’t going to get drunk off a slice or two. Besides, once you take a bite you might not want to share it with them.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups self rising flour (see note above)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

You can make your own self rising flour by substituting 3 cups all purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a bread pan.
Whisk together flour, sugar and 1 cup of cheese in a large bowl. Stir in beer and mix until thoroughly combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake for 30 minutes. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake 15-30 minutes until bread sounds hollow when thumped (or skewer inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean)

Until next time, happy eating.
