• 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 can (12 oz) of any beer


  1. Combine Ingredients: In a spacious mixing bowl, gently whisk together the self-rising flour and beer until just combined. Don’t worry about any lumps; they contribute to the bread’s rustic charm.
  2. Prepare Slow Cooker: Grease the interior of your slow cooker or line it with parchment paper to ensure easy removal and cleanup.
  3. Add Dough: Transfer the sticky dough mixture into the slow cooker, spreading it evenly.
  4. Cook: Cover the slow cooker and set it on high heat. Allow the bread to cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the top is firm and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Cool and Serve: Once cooked, remove the bread from the slow cooker and let it cool before slicing. This resting period ensures cleaner slices and enhances the bread’s flavor.

Variations and Tips:

  • Flavor Add-Ins: Enhance the bread’s taste by incorporating fresh herbs or cheese into the dough. Consider using sharp cheddar or rosemary for an extra flavor boost.
  • Beer Varieties: Experiment with different types of beer to customize the flavor of your bread. Opt for a pale ale for a lighter loaf or try stouts or porters for a richer taste.
  • DIY Self-Rising Flour: If you don’t have self-rising flour on hand, you can easily make your own by adding 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to each cup of all-purpose flour.
