Bacon Jalapeno Popper Cheesy Bread

Another Pinterest find.

When I saw this recipe, it reminded me of the Basic Beer Bread Recipe that we make, but slightly different.  I saw in the original blog that buttemilk was subbed for the beer, but I decided we should sub the beer back.  So we did. 

D made it.  There was some issue of it coming out of the pan, so I suggest Parchment Paper or grease the hell out of the pan.  Also it was a little doughy even thought the toothpicks came out clean when testing.  So I suggest 55 minutes. 

The taste was outstanding, and we both had trouble with not eating more than 2 pieces.  We had to quickly wrap up the rest.  I'm guessing it is 16 servings but I think we sliced ours thinner so we will have more. 

Overall, I would have again.

Bacon Jalapeno Popper Cheesy Bread

Servings: 16
Adapted from Call Me PMC

8-10 slices bacon, after cooked and chopped you'll need 2 cups
3 (363 grams) cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon granulated sugar
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup diced jalapeno, this will be about 1 large jalapeno, I diced seeds as well
2 cups mild cheddar cheese
12 ounce beer (Used Budweiser)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1. Preheat oven 350 degrees

2. Spray 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray (or use Parchment Paper).

3. In a large bowl combine cream cheese, jalapenos, bacon and cheese. Stir to combine.

4. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Whisk to combine. (You can use a mixer for this, just be careful not to over-mix.)

5. Add cream cheese mixture, 1 tablespoon oil and beer and mix until just combined, don't over-mix.

6. Pour mixture into loaf pan.

7. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, until top is browned (Probably bake 55 minutes next time).

8. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack, cool 5 minutes before removing.
