JalapeƱo-Corn-Beer Quick Bread

I didn't have enough beer so subbed about a third with milk. I also added diced cheddar and dusted the loaf pan with cornmeal for some crunch. Frozen corn worked great (with extra baking time), since I didn't have to worry about excess liquid.

In restrospect, I chopped the jalapeno too fine, and didn't get the bite I was hoping for.

I was curious what the texture would be like with no eggs and very little fat. The end result was a tight crumb with a bit of spring and chew, which I absolutely loved.

Next time around, I'll experiment by adding some cilantro and maybe some of toasted cumin seeds.

So quick and easy to make, definitely a keeper!
