Fat.Freedom's picture
  Cooked corn meal 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Dry yeast 2 Teaspoon
  Warm water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Skim milk 1 Cup (16 tbs), scalded
  Unbleached flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Whole wheat flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)

1. Prepare cooked corn meal recipe and cool slightly.
2. Sprinkle yeast over warm water.
3. Put sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add scalded milk. Stir. Add cooked corn meal. Mix well and cool to lukewarm.
4. Add 1 cup flour and yeast mixture. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 10 minutes.
5. Put in a bowl, cover, and let rise until double in bulk, about 1 hour.
6. Punch down. Let rest 10 minutes and form into a long loaf. Gash top diagonally with sharp knife, 1/4 inch deep every 2 1/2 inches apart. Cover; let rise until double, about 45 minutes.
7. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350° and bake for 30 to 35 minutes longer. Put a pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven. The additional moisture causes a hard crust to form on the bread. Cool before slicing.
