Bubba's Beer Bread

Bubba's Beer Bread


"This bread is the best when baked in a black cast iron pan. Once the bread is in the oven, start 'cookin down' those collard greens, black eyed peas and hawg jaws. It's a New Years tradition. It'll change your luck !!!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 or 10 inch cast iron skillet.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the self-rising flour, sugar, onion powder, dill weed and salt. Pour in the beer, and stir until all of the dry is incorporated. Stir as lightly as possible so as not to deflate the beer. Fold in cheese cubes.
  3. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly touched. The bread should rise way above the edge of the pan.

This was a good, hearty bread. If you do not have self-rising flour, you can add 2 tsp baking powder and 3/4 tsp salt to regular flour. I do not have a cast iron skillet, so I just made this i...

Pretty good, super easy, it was a little bland for my taste, i would have liked it with a little garlic and spices. Also, mine did not rise very high. Overall it was good.

For a bread that is made without yeast, this bread is amazingly like a yeast bread. It was like a cross between a cheese biscuit and yeast bread, with a nice crunchy crust. The only changes I ma...

Top is very hard. I thought the bread would be dry. Actually, the bread was moist and had wonderful flavor. This is a very dense heavy bread. Not a pretty piece but very tasty for a home meal.

This has a good flavor, but the texture leaves a lot to be desired. Because of being cooked in a cast iron skillet, not only is there a bottom crust (good) but the top of this bread is hard and ...

Hey Bubba, This recipe must be for yankees cause southerners eat "hog Jowls."

Good! Like Grannyloohoo I put butter on top of mine. The top is still super crunchy which I don't like that much. I added granulated garlic. I like the cheese in chunks. Used a good amber ale. R...

I made my own self rising flour. This needed four more ounces of beer than what was called for. I melted 1/4 cup of butter and poured it over the top before baking. This took just over an hour t...

Love this bread. Hardest part is having a beer at room temperature. I drink mine frosty cold.
