Let's face it, the title already has you salivating.
How about now? (I'm evil, I know.) Don't worry, I'm still nice enough to share.
2 2/3 C. all purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. dried dill
1 bottle beer
1/4 heaping C. chopped jalapeno (jarred or fresh) - this can be adjusted to personal preference. I like mine a bit more on the spicy side
1/2 heaping C. shredded cheddar cheese, plus more for garnish
1.4 C. melted butter
nonstick cooking spray
in a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients (first 7) with a wooden spoon.
Add diced jalapenos & shredded cheddar.
Pour in beer & stir until just moist.
Using a rubber spatula, scrape dough from bowl & place in a loaf pan thoroughly coated with cooking spray. You'll need to carefully even out the dough with the spatula.
Pour about 1/2 of the melted butter over top. Place in a preheated 375 degree oven & bake for 45-50 minutes.
See all the jalapeno's & cheese?!
Pour the remaining melted butter over loaf & top with shredded cheddar (as little or as much as you like.) Place pan under broiler for a few minutes until cheese just begins to brown.
Carefully trace the outline of the pan with a sharp knife, in order to free your loaf from underneath the broiled cheese. Because if you're anything like me, you put a lot on!
