Fallen in love with 3-ingredient beer bread. What's your twist?

MarbleFallsParadise | Dec 3, 2007 05:41 PM

I made Lone Star bread tonight. :)

12 oz beer
3 C flour
3 t baking powder
3T sugar
1.5 t salt

(It would have been 3 ingredients had I used self-rising flour (omit salt & baking powder).

Bake at 375 for one hour.

Anyway, my mind is reeling with possibilities. Has anyone tried different types of beer? Adding honey or molasses to the top while baking? Using different sweeteners in the bread?

I'm just very taken with how easy it was, and how I could make up some mixes in baggies in the pantry and then just pour in a bottle of beer. I do like to bake yeast breads but this was so quick compared to yeast bread, and tasted better than my normally-failed biscuits. I want to try it making small loaves (more crust factor).

I'd love any variations or suggestions, even some exotic ones. Like what about dark chocolate chips added in, and using a really dark beer and possible some orange flavor somehow?
