I’m not a beer drinker but after a recent party, I had a few cans of beer left over so I decided to put them to good use and make this simple Beer Bread recipe.

I also took the liberty to mix in some chopped jalapeños for a little more flavor. Next time I think I will try adding a bit of cheese as well.

Self-rising flour is flour with baking powder and a bit of salt already added. If you don’t have access to self-rising flour you can make your own by adding 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and a 1/4 teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of All Purpose Flour.

As far as what kind of beer to use, I would suggest using what you have on hand. If you don’t keep beer at home, I would suggest buying the cheapest can/bottle you can find. No need to spend a fortune on beer for this bread recipe.

Adding jalapeños is totally optional. I had a jar handy so figured why not. You can either make this bread recipe without adding anything or experiment a bit by adding various ingredients like chopped bacon, onions or some of your favorite spices.
