Beer bread is something that I was first introduced to through a Pampered Chef party over 15 years ago. It was love at first bite. I love that I have a homemade version that I can make anytime I want. I make a version of beer bread at least twice a month when the weather is chilly. My kids love a sweet version, so I knew that I had to make key lime bread with the fantastic extract from The Spice House.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs (consistency of flour)
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
12 ounces beer (I use Blue Moon, Belgian White)
1 1/2 teaspoon The Spice House Key Lime Extract
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup softened butter
1/4 cup local honey
Zest of one lime
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray or grease a loaf pan and set aside. In a large bowl mix together flour, graham flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and white chocolate chips.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, pour the beer and the key lime extract into the well, stir together until no dry flour remains. Pour into prepared loaf pan and drizzle melted butter over the batter.
Bake for 50-60 minutes.
In a small bowl stir together the butter, honey and lime zest.
