This recipe intrigued me. It contains several things I love; cheddar, bacon, jalapenos, and beer. And it was super easy to make! The jalapenos add a subtle flavor and not really any heat to it. So if you like it hot you’ll want to up the amount you put in. Enjoy!
Bacon Jalapeno Cheddar Bread
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 6 slices of crispy bacon, chopped
- 3 tbsp. jalapeno pepper, minced
- 2 1/4 cups grated cheddar
- 1 12oz beer (I used a brown ale)
- 3 tbsp. butter, melted
Preheat your oven to 350° and spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray. I lined mine with parchment paper as well, then re-sprayed; this makes taking the loaf out super easy.
In a large bowl; sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, cumin, and sugar. Add in the bacon jalapeno and cheese. Pour in the beer and mix until just combined, don’t over mix it! Spoon into the loaf pan and pour the melted butter over the top. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick come out clean from the center.
Allow to cool and enjoy!
