This spicy beer bread features pale lager mixed with pepper jack cheese, red pepper flakes, and sliced jalapeños. 

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 Cups All-purpose flour

  • 4 Tsp Baking Powder

  • 1 1/2 Tsp Kosher Salt

  • 1 1/2 Cup Pale Lager

  • 1/3 Cup Whole Milk

  • 5 Tbsp Unsalted Butter

  • 1 Cup Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese

  • 1/2 Tsp Crushed Red Pepper

  • 1 Jalapeno, sliced thin

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Slowly pour in beer and milk. Stir until well combined. Stir in 3 tablespoons of melted butter.
  • Reserve and set aside about 2 tablespoons of shredded cheese. Fold remaining cheese and crushed red pepper (red pepper flakes) into batter.
  • Batter will be thick. Spread batter into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle reserved cheese over batter. Top with jalapeño slices. Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter over batter. 
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes until bread is golden brown and toothpick inserted in center of bread comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes before unmolding. 
  • Serve bread warm or at room temperature.

Notes

  • In place of pepper jack cheese, you can substitute: mild cheddar, colby-jack, havarti, or Swiss cheese
