Caribbean Corn BreadFrom choclytcandy 4 years ago
- 3 oz finely ground yellow corn flour (not cornstarch) shopping list
- 4 fl oz boiling water shopping list
- 1 1/2 tsp salt shopping list
- 16 oz white flour shopping list
- 1/2 oz of easy blend yeast shopping list
- 1 tsp of white sugar shopping list
- 4 fl oz warm milk shopping list
- 4 fl oz warm water shopping list
- 1 oz butter shopping list
How to make it
- Put the corn flour in a saucepan and pour the boiling water over it. Cook for 6 -8 minutes with 1/2 tsp salt; keep stirring so that it does not stick, then spread over a large plate to cool.
- Put the flour, yeast, 1 tsp each of salt and sugar in a large bowl, mix in the barely warmed milk, add the cooled corn and begin mixing together, adding the warmed water a little at a time to make the dough.
- The amount of water varies according to the coarseness of the corn meal. At first it may look as if the corn meal won't mix in evenly; try to break it up into small pieces as you add it to the flour, but kneading will distribute it perfectly if you do it for at least 10 minutes.
- I would check the dough for salt and add more if needed. Coat the dough when it is kneaded with the butter and leave to rise.
- Sometimes the dough is a little sticky when you punch it down for the second time, so sprinkle the board with an extra 1/2-1oz of flour as you knead it, then put into the baking dish and leave to rise again.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees, cook for 10 minutes, then lower temperature to 350 degrees for another 20-25 minutes. Leave to cool and then remove from baking dish.
