Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread with Self Rising Flour

bacon cheddar beer bread with self-rising flour |

 One of the reasons I like beer bread is that it is SO easy.  It surprises me how costly the prepackaged mixes are!  The basic beer bread with self-rising flour recipe is super-frugal and only uses a few ingredients.  Plus, it’s easy to tweak the basic recipe to come up with fun creations like this Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread.  It’s great to serve at a party with dips and spreads.

Frugal Tip:  If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make your own:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 8
This variation of beer bread uses self-rising flour to make it easy.
  • 12-oz. beer
  • 3 C. self-rising flour
  • ¾ C. Cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices bacon, chopped into crumbles
  • ¼ C. butter
  1. Mix the beer, self-rising flour, Cheddar cheese and bacon together in a bowl. Spread batter in a greased bread pan.
  2. Melt the butter and pour over the top.
  3. Bake 40-45 minutes at 375. At the end, I sprinkled a little cheese on the top of the loaf for color.



  1. Great recipe! I could never say no to this combination of quick and easy bread, tasty cheese, salty bacon and flavorful beer!

  2. Cheddar and bacon + bread and beer?? Not much room for improvement there, is there?? It looks great – and like it’d be a great side for soup or chili!
