Recipe Info

Legend has it that Godric was also the man who gave Hogwarts the Sorting Hat, a sentient piece of headwear that soon became the one to sort the school’s students into houses long after Godric and the other founders were gone. The hat contains the intelligence of all founders, so it can pass on their intuition on each Hogwarts student forever. Godric will always be known for his accomplished skills in battle, and his fight against Muggle discrimination in the wizarding world. In fact, it was a serious argument between Godric and Salazar that finally made the Slytherin founder leave Hogwarts. Godric was a man, certainly, ahead of his time.

3 cups Self Rising Flour
3 T Sugar
12 oz of a decent Ale
1 cup Cooked Bacon, chopped (this was about half a pound)
1 cup Sharp English Cheddar, shredded
1 T Dried Thyme
¼ cup Melted Butter
Cooking Spray

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Use your preferred method to grease your loaf pan. (we used cooking spray) Combine flour, sugar and ale in a bowl. Mix together till well combined. This will look like a dough versus a batter. Fold in thyme, bacon, and cheese. Pour doughy mixture into your greased loaf pan. Smooth top and make sure dough fills the pan. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and pour the melted butter over top of your loaf. Bake for 10 more minutes. (Your butter may still look bubbly when done, this is ok) Remove from oven. Allow your loaf to cool. Remove from loaf pan and serve.
